What's in a name?

16 03 2010

Why is it that the second I sit down to blog–at 12:30 am, no less–my child wakes up? Is this some sort of cosmic commentary on my blogging abilities?

Moving along. I’m a traditionalist when it comes to names. I’m aware that some view naming their children as some kind of art form or something, but I’m not one of those people. In fact, while running down the list of names for my boys, I spent an inordinate amount of time contemplating the different ways their names could be used to mock them. That’s not just me, right? It seemed like an important thing to do.

I see a lot of different names come through our pharmacy. Some are what I would consider normal. Others are riding along the fringe. Still others…well, they defy description. With that in mind, I present my very first poll!

I did not make up any of those names. Seriously.
