Poor Taste in Art, Good Taste in Names

I find this article about the push present/baby bauble phenomenon somewhat disturbing. (Now don't get me wrong, when I have a baby one day, I'm sure I will be more than overjoyed if my husband gives me a gift of expensive jewelry afterward--I'm not exactly one to say no to jewelry. But I just think there's something wrong with expecting it as a necessary function of giving birth or something.)
But, anyhow, kudos to the baby in the article who has my name. (Though I would note that the metal sculpture the mother got as a "push present" puts her taste into question.)
