Congrats to them. Hate the name though, Michael was the 90s John, he’ll be sharing his name with millions.

Cynthia on

@André, your name is very common also.

@Cynthia – agree!

There is nothing wrong with the name Michael. It is a classic name. Besides, we don’t know if he was possibly named after someone special to them.

Congrats on the new baby. The name doesn’t matter as long as they are healthy. However, Andre is a very common name. I am 29 and I went to school with a lot of Andre’s and now I teach and come across an Andre every year. etc, Andre, Le’Andre, De’Andre,etc. They are everywhere. But it’s ok. LOL

Congrats on baby Michael Caden.. Wanna hear something absolutely weird. I have a son named Michael and he is also born on April 17 2006. I was just currently pregnant and had a baby girl but if I had a boy his name as going to be Caden… I been stopped at numerous places with my family and friends and ppl have stopped me and asked me if we were related.LOL. I have been told that we look like we could be twins… I just wanted to tell you. But congrats on the baby Michael.. I love the young and the restless! Have a wonderful day 🙂

People always say how gorgeous she is but I don’t think she’s attractive at all.
