The first thing that comes to my mind when I hear "Remington" is the electric razor. But I live in the Northeast and don't follow country music at all, so maybe it's just me??

Sweet Caroline...bah bah bah...good times never seemed so good! That seems like a huge one to me. I have a good friend named Caroline, and she certainly hears it a lot. Luckily it's an awesome song. Matildas say they hear "waltzing matilda" a lot, but I don't even know the tune to that song, just the title. I have NO IDEA what song has the name Adeline in it...??? Or Elvira. Maybe it's an age thing? But it seems to me that Caroline would be way more prone to song references than either of those two, just based on my experience.

But it's not Santanya, it's Satanya (without the first "n"). You're right, Santana is a lovely name; but Satan with an "a" or "ya" at the end wouldn't be, at least not to my ears! I'm disappointed that Freakanomics would have unverified information like that in their book. I really found the section on names to be interesting, but it changes a lot if it's not to be relied upon!
