The nifty names some give their special children are not good ideas.

I had a friend in high school whose name was Polly. Yes she heard (not from me, though) all the jokes about wanting a cracker, etc. Her middle initial was E and for a long time, until she came to know that I was trustworthy, she wouldn’t expand on it. The day finally came that she admitted that she was named for two of her aunts, Polly and Esther. I said “Oh my gosh, your parents named you polyester!?!” She explained that her mom and dad had no knowledge of the plastic compound, they merely wanted to keep family names alive.

Forty years ago when living in Northern Va there was a listing in the local phonebook (remember those) for a gynecologist in the physicians section. His name was Dr. Harry Beavers. I always assumed his choice of profession was a foregone conclusion!
