I grew up friends with a Crystal, a Rhiannon, and a Spring Dawn. One name sounds like a stripper, one's just confusing, and one is ungodly hippie-dippie. Trust me, white people give thier babies stupid, weird and/or unprofessional names every day. But the 'stupid baby name' email forwards (and the stereotypes that go with them) are usually written for and by white people and strange white baby names don't get included. I'm not sure whether it's an unconcious thing where 'white' names just don't sound as weird to white people or whether it's a concious decision to not include any name that one of your friends is likely to have called their baby.
