On names: an ongoing rant

Prudence shakes her coiffed head at the parents of the child on the front page of today's West Australian.

Arizona.

If one is determined to name one's child after a dry, barren place mostly inhabited by venomous reptiles, one could at least pick a desert in Australia.

Prudence respectfully suggests Tanami as a name for any subsequent children.

Tsk.
