NeoBad: This might give way too much away for some folks.....but my Mom wanted to name me after my Dad's Brother who had just died a few years before and his widow, looking down at me in the crib, and I was born cross eyed and had not had the repair yet, told my Mom, You are not going to name that "xxeadase" baby after him, the doctor...so my Mom, not wanting to cause too much family strife, named me after one of her favorite uncles.Aunt XXX and I had a great laugh about this when I got out of Medical School, the pie squarely on her face....
Nem Wan: Does naming kids after ancestors not occur to people anymore?
willicus: When it came time to name our kid, Mrs. willicus and I had one rule: It must not look stupid on a resumé.
