Well, they actually went ahead and did it. Earlier this year Bristol Palin's ex, Levi Johnston, and his girlfriend Sunny Oglesby said they were planning to give their baby an unusual (to put it mildly) name.
But she was only five months along then, and we thought it was probably just pregnancy hormones, or a trick to throw people off of the real (normal) name they were going to bestow on their daughter. But nope, they were dead serious.
Earlier today they welcomed their daughter into their arms with the name that celebrates the right to bear arms. Ready?
It's Breeze. Breeze Beretta Johnston.
I know. It's one of those names that's met with dead silence for a minute or two while people try not to laugh and ask if you're joking or drop their jaw in shock/horror. When they realize you're not kidding, that's usually followed by something like, "Oh ... wow, how ... unique!"
It's not the worst name in the world. Breeze has a certain nice, light, and airy quality. But add the middle name, which is a popular Italian gun, and all I can think about is the saying about shooting the breeze. Not so good.
And the whole thing together just kind of screams stripper, no?
In the end though, it's their kid, and their choice what to name her. On the positive side, it's probably going to serve them well when she's dating, as guys will know she has a dad crazy enough to give her a name like that.
The real question though -- is it better or worse than brother Tripp's name?
What do you think of the name Breeze Beretta? Better or worse than Tripp?
