  • i have a joke! a girl named ransom grows up and has a baby. one day she's out with her brother and asks him to hold the baby while she goes to the bathroom. he sees a coworker who asks about the baby and he says, "oh i'm just holding her for ransom." HA! it's not really all that funny but it's funny to me :P

  • Ransom is the practice of holding a prisoner or item to extort money or property to secure their release, or it can refer to the sum of money involved. It's NOT a person's name. Might as well name the kid.....Twelve or six.

  • How about Branson? That is very close, but a much more positive name.

  • It has a scary/negative flair for me . . . . I would be hesitant to name a baby something like that.
