The five worst names in TV history are counted down at TV Squad: Milhouse van Houten (The Simpsons), Nascar racer Dick Trickle, Corky Thatcher (Life Goes On), Beaver Cleaver, and Boner Stabone (Growing Pains). A notable omission: Mama's Family's Naomi Oates, whose name kept her just one step above stripperhood. And since when are Nascar drivers TV characters?
Meanwhile, the Daily Dish ponders who has the manliest names, suggesting Magnus Magnusson, Dick Pound, Stirling Mortlock and Powers Boothe. My vote has to go to Jock Stirrup and Dick Armey.
And, topping it all off, Anthony Kiedis reminds us that celebrities are, in fact, different by naming his son Everly Bear. The first part is in honor of The Everly Brothers. The second part is in honor of he and his wife being crazy idiots.
