    Jimmie Johnson, company man: his daughter's initials are 'GM'

    Jimmie Johnson, company man: his daughter's initials are 'GM'
    By Jay Busbee

    We all have different ways of showing our loyalty to our favorite companies. Some of us wear their T-shirts, some of us write songs in their honor, some of us even get tattoos to brand ourselves forever with our corporate love.

    But Jimmie Johnson, as he so often does, has gone and trumped us all. As reported first on Johnson's Twitter feed @DoubleJ48, the family has named his brand-new daughter Genevieve Marie.

    Genevieve Marie. Initials GM. As in "General Motors." Get where we're going now?

    Yes, Johnson, who owns a Chevrolet dealership and drives a Chevy Impala that ends up in victory lane rather often, has — intentionally or not — named his daughter after his chosen auto manufacturer. Yes, this could be coincidence, but do you think Johnson does anything that's not planned down to the millisecond?

    Now, to be fair, Johnson's own Twitter said it was "purely coincidence" that Genevieve Marie and General Motors share initials. But it's one happy coincidence, wouldn't you say? The kid's already received several hundred million in government bailout funds.

    All jokes aside, congrats to the Johnson family on its new arrival. (Here's a photo of the little beauty, by the way.) And in a few years, she can surely look forward to playing with her sibling. That child's name? Why, Lowe Kobalt, of course.

    Genevieve is a very old name, much classier than the phonetic garbage spewing out of hospitals these days.

    Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, I guess. Could be worse- my dental hygentist's name is Twinkle. No joke.

    I agree 100%

    My wife teaches 1st grade and it amazes me the names that parents are giving kids nowadays.

    One kid was named Orangejello. I'm not even making this up. His parents pronounce it:

    OR'ANGJELO

    That kid is going to be beat up all through life.

    Jimmie is a very under rated race car driver. What he has done in NASCAR is remarkable regardless of whether you are a fan or not.

    That said, having the best equipment (GM) always helps!

    Lots of people name their kids unusual names. It's bad enough other kids will make fun of them but we adults should be above that. By they way congratulations Jimmy.
