This is How We Do It
You know when you just can't make yourself care? I remember a couple of weeks ago Lainey was trying to make herself care about Ariana Grande. That's how I feel about the Hemsworths. I try to make myself care. There's no ill-will or distaste, it's just like trying to get me to have a real emotional response to, like, rice. It's yes, and...? (Lainey: RICE IS LIFE!!!)
But I might have to change my mind because of a really beautifully named pair of twins. Baby boys Sasha and Tristan were born to Hemsworth and wife Elsa. Damn right.
Sasha is a name that has been, who are we kidding, definitely feminized – and yet it really, really works on boys and men (though the arbitrary masculinizing “c” really is arbitrary).
But if you're going to do it, you can't name the other boy "Charlie". Tristan and Sasha are equally soft but male, storybook yet grounded. Sometimes the whole is more than the sum of its parts and this is exactly that.
So now I care about Chris and Elsa, skillful baby namers. Who knew?
