The birth of Penelope Scotland

I try not to care about the Kardashians. I really do.

But when I heard that Kourtney Kardashian and her husband Scott Disick just named her daughter Penelope Scotland, well, I couldn’t help but take notice.

Is Scotland an appropriate name for a child – especially given by a non-Scottish couple who probably couldn’t locate Scotland on a map? Is Scotland an appropriate name for a girl? Am I wrong for wondering why they couldn’t just stay local and go with a name like Hollywood, Westwood or Burbank? What do you think?
