True Life Story: What did you name your kids?

–True Story–

A few years back (2006, to be exact), I recall having seen a human interest story on teevee about children in Birmingham Alabama’s Norwood Elementary Band Program and their need for instruments.

They were in dire need of instruments, having only about 50 – not nearly enough for all the children.

One dear, sweet child whom was interviewed was named “Quintavious Cheese.”

‘Oh well,’ I thought.

‘At least his parents didn’t name him something weird… like ‘Colby’!’

I’ve never understood the motivation to name one’s child something which is so… so… FREAKING BIZARRE!

Of course, there’s hardly any name that could beat Dweezil, as in Dweezil Zappa, or Moon Unit, late musician Frank Zappa’s son & daughter, respectively.

I’ve a young female friend who has named her children August Moon & November Raine.

Seriously.

I’m waiting for March Madness.
