Anyway, when I was watching the coverage of the "Blago" trial, they mentioned Rod's brother, Rob, who took the stand yesterday. They kept saying things like, "Rob say Rod is..." or "Rod and Rob were not close..." How confusing is that? Their parents actually thought it was a good idea to name one son Rob and the other Rod, and they aren't even twins. (I'm sure it's actually Robert and Rodney, but still, they didn't think of what their nicknames would be?? Parents always need to think of that, plus what their child's name will rhyme with. Apparently Barb and Kip didn't think of Jeannie rhyming with "Weenie" or "Meanie." Thanks a lot, guys.)
I've never been a fan of siblings with close names. If I'm a twin, I'm already sharing the same facial features and probably the same bedroom with my sib. I sure as heck don't want to be "Hailey" and "Bailey" or "Chloe" and "Zoe". People would never get your name right.
(By the way--I haven't had coffee yet, so my brain isn't fully functioning. So I cheated a little, and googled "Girl's names that rhyme." You know what else popped up when I typed that? "Girl's names that rhyme with Chuck." So weird! Who googles that??)
