I am so obsessed with this girl. My mom was similarly obsessed with figure skaters Sonja Henie and Tiffany Chin when my sister and I were born and they became our namesakes. So what would be a more perfect way of carrying on the tradition than naming Baby Girl after the gold medalist I cheered on all through Sochi and then on Dancing with the Stars.
But (and no offense to anyone) I just cannot come around to liking the name Meryl. I guess I’ll just have to settle for inviting Meryl to be a part of my bestie group that I have going with Jennifer Lawrence, Mindy Kaling and Taylor Swift.
