So, somehow William's name came up again in my 6th period class, the class w/ a black girl who has never met a black guy named William. She did admit yesterday that she met a black Will but his name is just Will. (smh) So she says I should just name him Patrick. Told her I wouldn't because my grandfather's name trumps my godfather's name. Then she said what about the other one, Charles. I said that's my step-father's name-- again, doesn't trump my grandpa. So some kid said, "You should give him all three names-- William Patrick Charles". Another kid said, "Oooh, that sounds like a writer." A third kid said, "It sounds like a guy who runs companies." I thought to myself, "William Patrick Charles Cannon it is." Done and done.
Well, I was pondering giving the kids their dad's last name; it does belong to them but, at the same time, I don't want to. It's not actually his last name but his step-father's.
