Was discussing names that stretch the limits with a friend tonight. A person he knew had used a mathematical term for their childs middle name. My friend’s remark was something to the affect of “that’s a uniquely American thing, choosing non-traditional names.” Where he’s from, if your name is not a saint’s name, well, that could be challenging. So I had a go: Juul Juicero … Smith? Hilariously unforunate. “You see, Juicero hadn’t peaked yet when I was born….”
