Are you sympathetic or do you think it's daft

Would you name your child Abcde and then be surprised and hurt when people laughed.

Now I would always consider how a child's name is going to be perceived by their peers and outsiders and avoid anything contentious. Something Qwertyuiop, Asdfghjkl and Zxcvbnm are grateful for.

The apology is no doubt a reaction to the PC police.

It's a daft name, but like the boy named Sue, it might make her strong... or maybe not.

Abcde (ab-si-dee), rhymes with tragedy...

It seems to be a common trend in the US for stupid names to be 'invented' especially amongst the African American community. Just watch a couple of episodes of Judge Judy to see some very weird names.

The parents can complain all they like but, will they take responsibility for heir own failure to consider the child's welfare when naming her?

Of course they won't.

Makes you question if they are fit to have children?

Probably not a brain cell between them.

I feel sorry for the child, children can be very hurtful and will use any reason to be spiteful.

The parents should have interspersed a few numbers 'n' symbols to the child's christian name ... for added security.

do you think it's daft

I don't think it is daft at all, completely stupid would be a more appropriate description.

Off subject but a very soon to be born bundle-of-joy in my family's circle has been referred to [past 8 months] as Dauson which I think is quite a clever workaround. [ie, it could be a daughter or a son].

* I think is quite a clever workaround. *

Yes it is as long as they don't name the child such especially if their surname is Dawson:-)
