Toddlers and Tiaras 6/16/2010 - Kennedy, Chloe, Iyana and Kaya in the America's Trezured Dollz pageant. (Yes, It's Really Called That.)

Toddlers and Tiaras brought us some good names this week! I like Kennedy, Chloe and Kaya as names! All great, properly spelled choices.

My problem this week is with the name Iyana. Although Mom named her younger daughter well (Kaya), Iyana's name leaves something to be desired. First of all, it's pronounced I-ana (Ai-ana, eye-ana). I would pronounce Iyana as Ee-ana. Plus, Mom seemed to have a language of her own. She wanted her girls to 'luxuriate across the stage' and referred to pageant buffs as pageant buffies. She also made her girls wear outfit of choice costumes that reminded her of drag queens.

While I definitely subtract points for the notes above, Mom was economical - she bought her girls' outfits on eBay. I support her ability to pay less if she can, although the dresses didn't seem to fit her daughters quite right. And, Mom was spunky - I like that!

I'm actually quite surprised that the kids' names weren't bad this week on Toddlers and Tiaras. Why? Because the pageant had the worst. name. ever. America's Trezured Dollz. That's right. Not America's Treasured Dolls, which would be perfectly acceptable if not comparing live children to inanimate objects. America's Trezured Dollz. How's that for teaching kids to spell properly?
