    What’s In A Name?

    Do you remember when you were a child and it was cool to have a cup, key chain or T-shirt with your name on it? Well, I never had that luxury, you see, because I have a rather unique name. I learned early on in life that I would never be able to walk into a gift shop and purchase anything with my name on it right off the rack. If I wanted a personalized key chain, they’d better have engraving. If I wanted a T-shirt, hopefully they had airbrushing. So as you may have guessed, I wasn’t one of those people who could say, “My name means blah, blah, blah,” either. But most of my life, I’ve been comforted with knowing that my mom always knew she would name me ‘Annika’ after reading Pippi Longstocking as a girl, even if she didn’t know the meaning.

    Text Message Abbreviations Cropping Up On Birth Certificates

    Text messaging will most assuredly lead to the downfall of our society. What with all the ghastly abbreviations and acronyms, we might as well quit worrying about teaching the kids how to spell. There really won’t be a point, because even their names are being misspelled, perhaps based on the way someone might type it in a quick message: Cam’ron, Flicity, etc. Some people have taken that middle-school need to spell their names differently a little too far (and they’re making their children suffer).
