Really?!

I really have to wonder about people sometimes. Here is a prime example. A similar story can be found here.

My grandpa's name is Henry, and he was offered $$ to name my mama Henrietta. Fortunately, he had more wisdom than the parents in the above articles. I can't tell you how many times my mama has expressed her gratitude for this...she is much more comfortable as Sandy. It definitely suits her. :)

I listened to the book Freakonomics, and there was a story about a father who named a kid Winner. Then, just as an experiment, named the next one Loser.

Loser ended up being very successful and Winner ended up in jail.

I am trying to convince my sister to name her first sone Indiana (Jones) and first daughter Nora (Jones).
A name...such a powerful tool for both good and destruction to a person's life.
