Zephyr

by Lemonjello Redenbacher on July 2, 2009

I just saw this name on a list entitled “Old Fashioned Boys Names.”

What the fuck?  I have never once heard of anyone named Zephyr.  If I did, I would be immediately compelled to kick his ass.  That’s the kind of natural reaction that normal people, such as myself, have to a name like this.

How old fashioned are we talking?  Sure, there may have been a mythological Greek character named Zephyr – -and technically that would be old fashioned – -but come on, people!  Next thing you know people name their kids Ugnh or Arrrghumph, which were probably very popular in the Cromagnon Era.

I had a lovely black and white goat called Zephyr whan I was a child. I had a white one called Cindy as well, and she was the better goat, no doubt because of her name.

The only Zephyrs I can think of are the west wind god in Greek mythology and the monkey in Babar ;)
