Next Food Network Star

Anyone else watch this? On the finale last night, the two final contestants, [name]Jeffrey[/name] and [name]Melissa[/name] talked about their home lives and family.

Their children’s names:


[name]Valentine[/name] ([name]Val[/name]-en-teen)
[name]Oceana[/name] (Oh-she-ah-na)

What do you think? Some of those are pretty unusual. I think I like [name]Valentine[/name].

I prefer almost any of those to the one a few years ago whose son was named [name]Indiana[/name].

[name]Isabella[/name]'s a little too popular for my tastes, but [name]Sebastian[/name]'s refreshing.

I assumed [name]Valentine[/name] is a boy, though the [name]Val[/name]-en-teen pronounciation sounds a little bit feminine to me (maybe it’s just me though). I like [name]Margo[/name] a lot; it sounds crisp and classic. [name]Oceana[/name] sounds exotic and pretty, though I imagine it would get mispronounced/misspelled a lot.
