"My husband and I wanted our daughter to have a name that people can spell and that she could find on a key chain or a mug. My nieces can't get the LeapFrog Violet dog to say their names. Sad."

Shoot! Jason and I haven't even considered the key chain issue while we've been nailing down baby names! Why didn't somebody point this out sooner? We better adjust our priorities, because if there's one thing that's important in life, it's being sure that at every filthy gas station across the country, you can find a piece of leather or plastic onto which a machine has clearly articulated your name.
To be clear: I totally get choosing a common name! I just don't get doing it on the basis of the LeapFrog being able to pronounce it.
