Dear GYA, I would like to announce that I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy last night and Josh and I decided to not name him anything weird ... so we settled on Axl Jack. Trust me, we mulled over quite a few names, like Slash Turn Signal, OnStar Power Window and Truck Nuts F250, to name a few.--- But. ultimately. we thought it would be best if he had a traditional family name ... since my grandfather was an '89 IROC. Anything happening this weekend more perfect than Axl Jack? - Fergie
