"We're calling him Molson."

Sunday, October 03, 2004
This article about the branding of babies via baby names got me wondering how this phenomenon might play out in Canada. Do you really think we'll see a huge number of kids named Molson, Horton, or Sandy McTire, in honor of their parents' favorite Canadian brands? (Sandy McTire is, of course, the stately Scotsman who can be found on Canadian Tire money, Canada's other currency.) Can you think of any other scary kids' names we might see as a result of our obsession with brands?

Now before anyone decides to write in to debate whether Molson is still a Canadian brand, let's all agree to play nice for the purpose of this exercise. :-) Deal?
