Matt Lauer Welcomes Baby Boy, Will Force Colleagues to Keep Straight Faces When Offering Congratulations
— Wed, Nov 29, 2006 —

Marital troubles? That's nothing a baby can't solve for Matt Lauer and Annette Roque (whose name is always accompanied by the superlative of accomplishment, "former model"). Their newborn entered the world yesterday morning and, while we're usually not the go-to blog to announce celebrity babies being born, we are here to regularly chronicle egomaniac New York parents who give their children exotic names without ever considering their son may end up in prison and have to tell the 6-foot-6 fella in cellblock D that his name is Thijs. And that it's pronounced "Tice." As in "Please be tice and use lube."

So they wanted to go with a Dutch name, big whoop. At least it's not made up like so many ethnic names these days. And we in America need to learn to pronounce names that are not 'Smith', 'Jones', 'Johnson', or 'Max' or 'Emily'. My madien name was English and it was constantly mispronouced and come on, it might not be American English, but it was still English, the two languages are not that far apart. We have gotten so dumb in this country.
