liz.lemonade: She is beyond good and evil.

David Boreanaz named his daughter "Bardot"? Another one of those names that seems lovely in theory, but perhaps not so much in practice. "Bar-doh" will provide her classmates with years of jokes and rude puns. (My parents named me "Margo". I suffered mightily on the playground, and by seventh grade I insisted on being called by my middle name. When I tell people now, they say, "Oh, it's such a beautiful name!" Yeah, well, try living with it as a kid.)
