    This is a great opportunity for you. Now is your chance to break the cycle and stop giving people in your family "odd" names. Just because your parents did it to you doesn't mean you have to do it to your son. Children suck toward one another and kids with odd names pay a hard price for their parents sense of humor or stupidity. Good luck!

    True story. I worked with a fellow that went by L.B. I asked him one time what the L.B. stood for? He replied, "I have cruel parents" and handed me his wallet. He didn't think I would believe him if he told me. Sure enough, his ID listed him as Little Billy <surname>. Don't be that guy!

    I can definitely see that. I hated my name until I was about 20. I grew up in a small town so no one was cruel towards me ever, but I hated having to explain it to adults. They would always correct me and say, "You mean Kerry, right?" No old fu*k, I mean 'karring' like my name, not the name you imagine with Wally and Beave in the '50s.

    Then I remember my drill sergeant in the army saying to me, "I bet you got made fun of a lot when you were young because of your name." I said to him honestly, "No, sergeant, I think you are the first." He never said a word to me the rest of basic training. Now I like my name.

    I have photos of my grandfather playing Grieg's personal piano. I love those pictures. Grieg was a superhero in my family.

    ThEoRy....oddly enough, my niece is named 'Seven'. Seriously.

    I always thought Ragnarr was a cool name.
