Why is it that most of the girls in the BSC had different names (only a few having even the same first name, and then of course the two Sabrina Bouviers ) while the majority of males in the BSC were named John, or some variation? Was it that much harder for AMM to think of boy's names? I mean, there's Johnny Hobart, Jonathan Stevenson, John Pike, John Ramsey, John Phillip Ramsey Jr., John Kishi (Is that his name?), Jack Schafer, John Brookes, and probably lots more, too. I think I read before that Jessi's uncle, her father's brother, was also named John? WTF?! (I never read that book, though, so I don't know). Okay, so maybe the MAJORITY wasn't named John. But still. I was thinking about this (clearly, I need a life. lol. )There were few girls who had the same name, (not including middle names here) and then all these men who did. Thoughts?
Well I guess John is a really popular name anyway, so its not incredibly unlikely that lots of people had the name, however I do agree. In a book you would think they would vary the names a bit, so only very few names doubled.
Well there names WERE kinda strange to begin with. I mean how many times in middle school did you meet a Mallory or a Mary Anne or Claudia? I mean don't get me wrong I love those names and its not like they are unheard of but seriously how often do you meet someone with those names? Especially in middle school. There would be an abundance of Brittanys, Ashleys and Megans in real life. And it always seemed to me that there were alot of weird names like Muffy. Who is named Muffy? Unless you are a lap dog?

I thought it was interesting when Karen decided to compensate for her hideous haircut in Karen's Haircut by changing her name to Crystal. When I was Karen's age and my friends and I would play our own version of Lovely Ladies, Crystal was always the most sophisticated and pretty name we could come up with! I even picked it once (I went through a huge phase when I was younger when I hated my name...now I like it, even though I seem to share it with the little princess the BSC watched over!)

I went to elementary school with a number of C/Krystals, and I always remembered them to be obnoxious and rude, so I never liked the name ;D It's funny, though, that Karen likes it so much she wants it for her name and also names her goldfish that!

Ooh, right, Jackie! Haha, I know a couple Crystals. Most of them are alright. There's my friend's sister, who's really nice, and a couple girls I went to school with, who were not exactly my friends or anything, but nice enough girls.
