Spot of the Week: Rugrats

My younger sister has recently taken up watching Rugrats like there’s no tomorrow, and this has caused me to rethink the name Angelica after a rude-reminder of just how mean the character is.

Sad days.

That said, are you aware of the names of Tommy’s maternal grandparents? They’re Boris and Minka, and I’m developing a serious love of the name Minka in all her Eastern-European charm. The same charm new-favourite Mila has.

The name of Tommy’s paternal grandparents are even more wonderful: Beatrix and Louis, known as Trixie and Lou and the latter is the Grandpa character seen in most episodes. He remarried a lady named Louise ‘Lulu’ at the beginning of the Rugrats in Paris film. Then there is Susie’s mother, Luciell ‘Lucy’.

Clearly, there’s a lot of love for the name Lou in the Rugrats, and that rocks.

I can’t avoid the O word for long, and someone I want to talk about is a Judo gold medallist. Remember how I mentioned the name Pasha a week or two ago? The man who picked up the medal was called Lasha Shavdatuashvili and he hails from Georgia. That’s the country, not the state. Lasha is the name of a place east of the Dead Sea in the Bible.

To end, a new virtue name?

Pride the Lion

Or just a tad bit too much?

One thought on “Spot of the Week: Rugrats

  1. Minka IS really cute, and I guess I haven’t been paying attention – but “Rugrats” is indeed filled with Lous and Lus!

    I think Pride is indeed a bit much, because it’s one of the Deadly Sins, and the more modern association as well. However, good luck to anyone who chooses it as an Olympic name (I suggest the middle!).
