What's In a Name
A pair of Swedish parents were fined 5,000 kronor for giving their child an obnoxious name. The court is also making them change it - and the child sighs in relief . Naming your child:
could be considered child abuse ... imagine ...
The child's developmental frustration at trying to learn it's own name; how to spell it and how to pronounce it.
The child every day having to deal with teachers and other adults who try to pronounce it and spell it.
The teasing and beatings from fellow classmates for having such a strange name... and if you doubt that will happen I will bring up an example of a fellow childhood classmate of mine who had the last name of butts... he did not have an easy childhood.
