In brief: 1 to be proud of

Name your baby what you want but be careful with how it may be difficult or embarrassing to the child later in life.
This can be brutal. Keep in mind your last name. No more harry butts please! initials like ass, dog, pus, god, rat and the like should be looked out. Precarious spellings can b a problem w/ the child always having 2 correct & spell for someone. La = ladasha with silent dash?
