"She's named after a mall in fairness," Barkley said. "There's a Christiana Mall in Delaware that I used to always go by. That's how she got her name, Christiana.

"Stop. You named your daughter after a mall? Why?" Ernie Johnson asked.

"I don't know, I just liked that mall."

"You're a mess man," Johnson said laughing.

Christiana Barkley, who was married earlier this year, is now 32-years old. The Christiana Mall was opened in 1978, so Charles Barkley decided to name his daughter after the mall not too long after it opened.

This one is certainly up there in the long line of hilarious Barkley stories that have made him one of the best personalities in sports.
