Amazing Mothers

 

CBS Sports has an Eagle

 

What makes mothers choose the names they do for their babies? I have often thought that they hear names they like while watching soap operas…Travis, Duke, Damian, Finnian, Hutch. Why not something more familiar or common…David, Tom, Steve, Paul, James….? Are they fantasizing about some identity they hope for the child?

 

So today I'm even more mystified about a mother whose family name is apparently "Eagle". Where does that come from…is that a true family name, a nationality, or something else? Or is that some sort of fantasy, too? Adding to the mystery, she named her baby "Ian".  

 

If YOU are Ian, how do you explain to your friends that your name is "Ian Eagle" — especially when you're on network television? Is it some sort of joke?

 

I apologize if my ignorance is somehow offensive.
