A Baby Name to Consider: Ribbo

The other day Elliot suggested we name the new baby "Ribbo."

This has been his sole contribution to the family's baby-naming discussion. But I wasn't sure if I should take it seriously since Ribbo didn't seem like a real name.

Boy was I wrong! It turns out that one of the Jawa junk dealers on Tatooine is called Ribbo Qua'lu.


I guess Elliot is just a really big "Star Wars" fan? (Odd, since he's never seen any of the movies.)

"Star Wars" came out in 1977, which means Ribbo has a longer track record than a certain girl's name from "Splash" (1984). So there's that.

Still, does Ribbo sound cute on a girl?
