What can YOU say in six sentences?
Abracadabra, I want to reach out and… save you from parents that named you that, because, yes, folks, out there in the metro area, a poor child is attempting to spell their drug-induced, magical, begotten name! As Shakespeare so poetically rationalized, would an Apple (or Abracadabra) by any other name be just as sweet, or at least more normal?
As a teacher, I am often left contemplating the delicacies and intricacies of naming a child and the lasting effects. Statistical generalizations can be made for kids with certain names and no child wants to be the fifth Lexie to join the class, nor do they really want to be the only Aloha to take a chair either.
Although names are life-long and provide a certain clarification as to who and what you are, I’d prefer others referred to me before making their final decisions, because unlike others that will tell you look skinny in a seersucker tube top and capris or man-pris and a white wifebeater if you’re male, I will tell you the truth right down to the fact that “Claire is a fat girl’s name.” However, I’m never above giving you an old lady name: http://boltoncarley.wordpress.com/2012/07/13/l-123-hi-fern-im-nelli....
