Although.. ya know.. Shampree and Shy'mekimartesha is a cool name too.

"T'Coris" will be the name of the Vulcan captain of the next starship Enterprise, opposed by the evil and all-powerful "Malik" and his amusingly flatulent sidekick "Quatez".

It would be nice if we lived in a world where girls (I assume it's a girl) named "Destini" aren't required by natural law to become strippers, but that just isn't the world we have.

I also like that I'm making jokes about a seven-year-old's obituary.

do you think her feelings are going to be hurt?

I don't understand the problem.

Re:
Wouldn't make much of a difference to me either way. It just makes me smile to think that if my mother called and asked what I did today, I could truthfully say: "Making fun of a seven-year-old's obituary."

My great-niece is named Destany. When she grows up, I suspect she'll prefer the term "exotic dancer."
