    And Vernon, and Glenn. But in general, these names are well-chosen.

    Duck: Derived from an aquatic-based biped.
  • Duck's name was actually Kenny junior... I think they should've called him by his name at least once. His parents using a stupid nickname... I guess they weren't very smart parents as well :) Although.. Katjaa should've been, she has education.
    Have we heard Katjaa call her kid Duck even once? :D

    This just reminded me that I added a shortcut to my iPhone. "Egg" autocorrects to "prebird" :D
    Brie \b-rie\ as a girl's name is of French and Latin origin, and the meaning of Brie is "marshland". Variant spelling of Bree, altered to coincide with the place name for a region in France most famous for the production of its cheese. Also used as a feminine form of Brian
    MARSHLAND. MARSH HOUSE. WOOT.
