Shiloh

So I think it's strange that people are named Shiloh. I've known a few folks (mostly girls) named it, and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie named their kid Shiloh. I guess it has a nice ring to it and it means "peace" in the Bible, but Shiloh was also one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War. I don't know anybody (aside from a Suicide Girl) named, say, Antietam or Chickamauga or Chancellorsville. What's next? Thermopylae Smith? Dien Bien Phu Jones? Fallujah Henderson?

That's what my mind went to first when they named their daughter that. But I'm a Civil War nerd.
