When you give birth to your child, the name thing is super important. Maybe you want to use something from your families history, maybe there's a dear friend that you would like to honor....anything is possible here kids. I've seen kids names after superheroes, sports celebrities, musicians, but NEVER EVER have I heard of a child named after an historic landmark. SG


This might be one of my favorite, and funniest names I've ever heard...and to think this young lady with the historic name went on to be a person that steals cars for a living. Classy!
