It's a Girl! And Another Girl With More Normal Parents!

As I'm sure everyone has heard by now, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise had their little baby yesterday morning. Her name is Suri. Let me go on record as saying I like the name Suri. And in a stunning coincedence, Brooke Shields, lambasted by Tom earlier this year for her battle with post-partum depression, had her baby yesterday, too, another little girl named Grier. Let me go on record as saying I love the name Grier.
Other blogs that I read have already begun calling this a battle of good vs. evil - Team Grier vs. Team Suri. Whose side are you on?

I only hope that when and if I spawn children I can come up with names as lovely as those... hm...

I like the name Grier but not Suri. I also love the name Shirley after the Billy Bragg song "Greetings to the New Brunette" but it is too grandmaish to give to a kid so it's what I call my dog.

tom cruise sucks, so i hope grier kicks suri's ass.

I like, not love, both names. That being said, I have to look at the complete name and how it sounds/flows and I think that Grier Hammond Henchy sounds/flows better than Suri Cruise – but we don’t know her middle name yet so, maybe it will make it flow better. Mamakraft
PS ~ Amanda, I got The Red Tent today (on my birthday) and I can’t wait to start it!!

I'm with paultoes, Tom is a dork so I hope Grier wins the battle.

Let's not forget it isn't Suri's fault her parents are a bunch of jackasses. I can just see the Dateline in 20 years when Suri and Grier do an interview saying how they wish their parents could just get along. Hopefully, Tom and Katie will die before then though.

I am on the Suri wagon because a: This baby is going to need lots of friends and b: I know two girls named Grier and they both suck.

Go go gadget Suri!
