What’s in a name?

These eccentric names that people are giving their children are getting out of hand. Citizen Wifey once told me that she attended grammar school with a girl named Lasagna. I always wondered was that her parent’s favorite meal? They probably thought they were being creative, but they did their daughter a disservice. They saddled her with years of ridicule at school and double takes at the HR Office. I do wonder where she is today. Maybe she is a successful lawyer that married a man named Spaghetti. They probably live in Atlanta, Ga with their two kids Ricotta and Mozzarella. It might sound “Cheesy” but it could be true.

my favorites: the twin boys named Orangejello and Lemonjello. Freakonomics actually had a chapter on this.
