Welcome to the World Baby Hashtag?

November 28, 2012

When I hear a newborn baby's name, I think either one of two things:

That's cute.

OR

Mom and Dad, what drugs were you on when you named this child?

A newborn baby girl born last night was named Hashtag Jameson. No, it's not a joke. Her first name is really Hashtag.

The social network, Twitter, is famous for using the symbol, '#,' as a signature feature on the site and calling it "hashtag."

Maybe the name stems from the parents' love for Twitter, but the mother posted a picture of the newborn on Facebook with the subject line, "Hashtag Jameson was born at 10 o'clock last nite. She weys 8pounds and i luv her so much!!!!!!"

From the mother's spelling skills, I can no longer be suprised by the baby's name.

All we need now is a little baby @ or an adorable baby Tumblr.

How do you feel about Hashtag's name?

What's the dumbest baby name you've ever heard?

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
