What's in a name?

I was just thinking...I read a paper yesterday and found out that parents have stooped to a new low...they named their beautiful 6 pound 8 oz daughter "wing." It's a dreamy whimsical name most likely intended to instill a feeling of light and happy. But...I'd advise a little more strategery here.

"Wing" How much fun can you have with that? Her room isn't a baby room...it's a wingwam. Depending on which way she's facing you can't say she's a 2 faced liar you could diplomaticaly say that east Wing is much different than West wing. Kids are going to go nuts with this one...she gets her first earwing...or when she gets her first keywing to go with her first Caw Caw Caw!!! In fact I'd buy her a classic black firebird and call it the blackbird (caw caw caw!). I suppose at her college graduation they won't release doves, they'll shoot her out of a canon. For a bird's eye view, just stand behind her. How about this one...give me a wingnut you nutty Wing! Ok...that was just mean. But, her mom will be the first mother ever to truly and completely suffer "empty nest" syndrome. She lives in America...left wing or right wing? hmmm.... Lucky she's not from the south...she gets asthma someone will tell her to get her inhaler on and it will sound eerily like "aileron". Instead of "let's get a move on" I'd be more inclined to say "let's fly!" She doesn't fart...she catches wind.

I think I'm going to name my first kid....Effin...what do you think?
