I always remember her as the bratty girl from the Addams Family movies. She was hilarious. Congrats to her and her husband!

What the…Vaunne!? So, bascially Vaughn, then. Very unattractive in my opinion. I hate when people misspell boys’ names and saddle them on their daughters. Sydney is unisex, too. Basically this is another Maxwell Drew kind of name, just misspelled. Therefore, it’s the equivalent of “Mackswelle” Drew.

Olivienne- Exactly! Sydney is unisex, as is Vaunne, and therefore an approprite name for either gender!

Amy on

Congratulations Mark and Mercedes on the birth of baby Vaunne…

Actually, Vaughn is the correct spelling of Vaunne, and it is masculine, not unisex. Vaunne is just a strange spelling of a masculine name. And Sydney is a unisex name. When you have a MASCULINE name followed by a UNISEX name, then that makes a masculine name overall…

I spy Alias fans!
