but the Palins (McCain's Veep in waiting) name their daughter Bristol.
Clarify this for me, English people, but is this not like choosing to name your daughter "Pittsburgh" or "Toledo" rather than "Sedona" (really nice town in the red rocks desert) or ... I don't know ... Tiffany (fancy jewelry store)?
What cultural implications does a name like Bristol have for you? (Other than that of a girl being kept locked up inside her house and forced to deny she's just had a baby in order to keep a stain off of the family's name. Note: now they admit she's 5 months pregnant - but who knows about the other one? Eight months absence for mono? I think not. There will be a book coming out about this that will make Mommie Dearest look like Good Night, Moon.)
