I believe that Styx said it best: “Too much time on their hands”

According to the front page of today’s Wall Street Journal, “You’re a nobody unless your name Googles well”-I introduce you to Abigail Wilson, a woman apparently so traumatized by the fact that her new married name cannot be found in Google, she is planning on inflicting the following on her soon-to-be born child:

So when Ms. Wilson, now 32, was pregnant with her first child,
she ran every baby name she and her husband, Justin, considered through Google
to make sure her baby wouldn’t be born unsearchable. Her top choice: Kohler, an
old family name that had the key, rare distinction of being uncommon on the Web
when paired with Wilson. “Justin and I wanted our son’s name to be as special as
he is,” she explains.

After all, who can be bothered with such silly things as family or religious tradition when it’s really the boys in Mountain View who we want to keep happy?

Oh please.
