And equally, when introduced to your offspring, who wouldn’t want a third party’s first reaction to be “What a name! These parents must be witty, erudite and generally charming people!” No-one, that’s who.

Sadly, I began to suspect I had not stumbled upon the most high quality website when I also found:
Famous Barbies include Barbie (plastic doll)
