Dear Mr. Freret,
I sometimes get a slight chuckle out of your "observations", but I can't let this one slide. A person's name is unique to that person, and at times parents do not have the foresight, or the inclination for that matter, to see what a name can become at the hands of the infantile. These people are struggling through life with an abundance of difficulties, only to be ridiculed, mocked and degraded with cute little nicknames that can haunt us, I mean them, into adulthood. So the carelessness and calousness with which you would so easily put out a list like this is an insult to us all. So, in closing, I'd like to say geau phuck yercelph
Sincerely,
Richard Licker
