9/27/07: Raising LaVaughn

<i>Salt Lake Tribune</i> cartoonist Pat Bagley illustrated KUER's \"Raising LaVaughn.\"

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Utah has a bit of a reputation for shall we say "unique" names. Collectors have come up with gems like LaVaughn for a girl and DeLoyal for a boy. But the author Lauren Wattenberg says that the country as a whole is following the trend. Parents are choosing monikers that help their children stand out from the crowd - for better or worse. Lauren Wattenberg is the author of "The Baby Name Wizard," and joins us today to help us kick off KUER's Fall Fund Drive.
