Does anyone know how old Grace is? It lists all the other kids’ ages except for hers.

I couldn’t find the info, I don’t follow the Cheney family, unfortunately. If someone knows, please email me – sarah@celebrity-babies.com

so they both of their sons have Richard in their names….

Here is an article from the May 2005 MY Times listing Grace Perry as 5, so she’s probably 6 or close to it by now. http://www.nytimes.com/2005/05/31/politics/31cheney.htmlei=5090&en=e9db157c3c92634a&ex=1275192000&partner=rssuserland&emc=rss&pagewanted=all

Thank you.

They have horrible taste in boy names. Girls names are nice, except I don’t like when parents name their kids after themselves.

congrats to them! alex, did you ever think they may have used a family name?

Hal Burton would have been more appropo.

alex: I agree. The girls names are so much better than the boys names.
And even if they are family names, I still operate on the policy that a bad name is a bad name regardless of whether they’re named after someone else. And I don’t understand why you would name your child the same name as your other child’s middle name. Did they run out of names they liked?

sarah on

I think its probably a name they both loved. whats wrong with naming both your kids the same name as long as its not the first….

personally, i think we are bashing this family just because of their political views and projecting hatred on the names of their children. you guys are childish!

AnnaRose on

sarah: You don’t even know what my political views are, so how could you possible know my motivation for disliking the names. Just because you don’t agree with my opinions on the names (and that’s the only thing I expressed any dislike of) does not mean that I’m not entitled to express that opinion.
And I believe that bashing the others posters is against the rules here.

Sorry guys, this is a poster that was previously banned on our last comment system. It’ll be taken care of.
