    Uh oh! I don’t know if Nate has some bad history with her or whatever, but the look on his face certainly doesn’t spell fantastic.

    If the girl’s cute, you never mind the name.

    she probably goes by ‘Gertie’ which is a cool name.

    Interesting name, but Nate is obviously ruining a good chance for himself.

    I think we all want Nate to finally get a girlfriend, but he’s a cartoon character, poor guy. He was screwed from the moment he found out she was a seventh-grader.

    Women’s names go out of style much faster than men’s. I’ve never known a Gertrude. It apparently was a very popular name in the 1890s-1920s. You never know, maybe it will come back. But I doubt it.

    Stephan Pastis once said that having a character react in the last panel is too obvious a sign that a joke has been told, but after this strip and the previous two-no offense-I am beginning wonder whether that is truly the case. To me, Nate’s reactions have only served to increase the comedic effect

    Gertrude?? Who looks at their teeny newborn and goes: I’ll name her GERTRUDE! It’s like a name for old ladies.
