And I was upset for a long time because my Mom named me Edgardo because of "Lucia de Lammermoor" and Alfredo because of "La Traviata" LOL

BTW, the state should have nothing to do about personal choices.

Fair or not our names can determine how some people treat us. I read about a study where kids were given a writing assignment. Several people were given the papers to grade. The names at the tops of the papers were names like John and Mary. Then the same papers were graded, but this time they had names like Egbert and Ophelia. The "John and Mary" papers consistently received higher grades than the others. Fair? Of course not. The way things are? Unfortunately, yes. That is why we need to think beyond the moment when naming our children.

Here's two more to add to the list of unusual names (and I'm not kidding, these two came in through the ER I work at)...Lord Almighty was one, and Daredevil was the other. These poor kids are going to get so kidded when they get to school.

Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.
