Casio. Seiko. Yul Brynner. Do you have cousins or nephews with such names? Or a classmate or friend of a friend perhaps? We’re talking about names entered into records, honest names that were given at birth.
You do? Of course you would. Now, have you ever wondered why someone would name their child after a Japanese watch or a baldhead movie star? Though it’s better than many other frightful things they could name their children after, it still is frightening.
Would it be to hide a cleft lip? Or a lisp? I’m not good at guessing these things. What do you think?
