The Chuck List

First off, let me congratulate Dakota Rebel on the arrival of Rebel 2.0. I'm so happy for you!! During the gestation and anticipation of the arrival of version 2.0, I must inform all of you that there was a long, inventive but largely unsuccessful campaign by my husband to get Mr. and Mrs. Rebel to name their bundle of joy Chuck. They were having none of it.

A mistake, surely. An oversight. Chuck is a strong solid name. And here fifty of the very famous and wonderful Chucks:

  1. Chuck Wepner – inspiration for the Rocky movies
  2. Chuck Norris
  3. Chuck Berry – My Ding-a-ling. Very ding-a-ling-centric. Important for a boy.

  5. Chuck Yeager – General and famous pilot
  6. Chuck (aka “Chuckie”) – determined and could wield a knife
  7. Chuck Brown – Snappy dresser. Can rock the bald.
  8. Chuck the groundhog – Staten Island’s Buckeye Chuck. Only slightly less famous than Pete
  9. Chuck Taylor – All-star
  10. Ground Chuck – feeding many

  12. Chuck Norris

  15. Chuck the Vampire – little know Twilight vampire. Was up for Edwards spot but doesn’t sparkle quite as sissily.
  16. Chuck Liddel – Martial artist, UFC Champ
  17. Chuck (of Charlie’s Angels) – Please, he had women at his beck and call, willing to run into danger for him.
  18. Chuck Chan – Ancient Chinese secret of famous detectives

True, we did not name the baby Chuck. But I did keep the fine list he made for me and will include it in the baby's scrapbook so he can see how hard your hubby campaigned for it.

Chuck the Unicorn was my fav on the list.
