    1. e4 e5 2. Qa5 is the Parham Attack, I think

    yet Hikaru Nakamura seems to be the only GM willing to consider using it.

    actually, Hikaru plays just about everything.

    "Parham's Folly" would be a more appropriate name.

    thx for pointing that out. I just saw on move 2, Queen, and rank 5 so my mind registered Qh5.

    It seems to me to be a pretty ordinary opening at most levels except novice, where you are hoping someone will fall into the "trap". Black should at least force a retreating move from white's queen, while at the same time developing a piece, giving it some advantage in the opening.
