Seriously?!?

I, stupidly, just opened a story on Yahoo! about the crazy celebrity baby names of 2010.  The story starts out with all of the wacky baby names that celebrities come up with.  Mentioning names like Apple and Pilot Inspektor.  Then they rank the more classic choices in celebrity baby names and there it is, ranking in at #2 for favorite baby names of 2010 is Harper Grace, the daughter of Neil Patrick Harris (AKA Doogie Houser) and his partner, David Burtka.  They welcomed twins (a boy and a girl) this fall via surrogate.  HUMPH! Doogie & Co. stole our name.  I guess I can't blame them since it is a pretty darn good name. But seriously, couldn't they have stolen someone else's name??

I knew their daughter's name was Harper but I didn't know the middle name was the same. Either way at least they have good taste <3

Seriously indeed! Like Jessica I knew their daughter's name was Harper from watching Inside Edition after the news last night. But they also took Grace as her middle name!? Don't worry, your Harper Grace had the name longer. ;)

I can understand the feeling! I am so glad I picked a non-common name of Rosalynn, because even if I see "Rose " in a name I get a little upset, like they stole my baby's name, even though Rose is TONS more common than Rosalynn!

I actually knew this back when they announced that the babies were born...and I immediately thought of your Harper. Never fear...she was there first.

I saw that and thought of you. Your Harper was first! And it's an awesome name.

Did you see Matt Damon named his daughter Stella?

I'm sure you feel the same way but I mourn Stella's name too. It was perfect. Stella Eulele. I wanted to use it everyday for the rest of my life. I do but it's for a memory.

I saw that story but avoided it like the plague! It's always tough to see our little one's names, especially the EXACT name! Like the others have said, your Harper had it first! <3 <3 <3
