What’s In A Name?
That’s the title of an entry I wrote about Joker. I wrote then: what could have inspired a parent to name a child Joker? The movie Batman or a memorable experience with the card joker?
In any case, somebody took the issue seriously and went into research about what bad or weird names do a child growing up–and got surprising results.
But what kind of parent would give his/her child these names: Please Cope, Ima Hooker, Candy Stohr, Mary Christmas, Rasp Berry, River Jordan, Ogre, Gorgon, Lucifer?
By the way, do you know that Jejomar Binay got his name from the Holy Family? It is said that when his mother saw him upon birth, she saw a lump of flesh so dark and so tiny, she let out a scream in horror “susmaryosep”. And so he got the name.
