Name of the Day

"Zack"? According to, "Zack" is the 1610th most popular given name in their database and falls between "Willa" and "Ines," so you can see this was a stroke of marketing genius—or something. I kind of like "Handy" myself. Not so common.

"Zack" will be launched in the fall. Stay tuned.
