I took the kids to the park today.
And there was a lady there with two little adorable boys. But one of the boys had the most unfortunate name I have ever heard*. And the mom kept saying it in an annoying voice over and over again, making it even worse. It was like hearing a tiger run his claws down a chalkboard.
She said his name so many times that my kids started saying it, thinking it was funny.
Moral to the story: Even if you really like a name, if it makes other people wince in pain, maybe you want rethink it.
*I'm not telling you what it is because it's very distinctive and if I tell you, I just know someone will say, "Oh, yeah, that's my cousin's kid."
