Moose Jaw's New Year's Baby has arrived. She was born on Monday afternoon - New Year's Day. Her mom and dad are Ashley and Jamison Drummond. At last word, they had yet to decide on a name for the little girl.
There were over 500 babies born in Moose Jaw last year. The most popular names are Lucas, Lincoln and Jacob for boys with Addison, Lily and Ivy the top three names for girls.
I love names. I like unique names. However, I miss the classics. My Dad's name was George. I like George. My mom was Doris. I like that, too. And what about Betty? I had an Aunt Betty. Everybody should have an aunt Betty.
My grandfathers were Charles and Joseph. My brother got both of those names. My grandmothers were Ethel and Mabel. My sisters did not get their names.
My sisters are Judy and June. If I had been a girl, I would have been Jill. But, I'm a boy so they came up with Robert. My Dad insisted that nobody was to call me Bob. Rob or Robbie or Robert...because "bob" is a verb.
