...i found out (through social media) what a pregnant friend of mine is going to name her kid, and the first name is nice, and so is the middle. honestly, there is nothing wrong with either separately. but, when they are put together, they sound like a fairly obvious pop culture reference. and i honestly am not sure if it was intentional.
now, i will be seeing this friend soon, and am worried about what to do when the subject of her name choice comes up, since its bound to.
it can go two ways....
if i ask about it, and it WAS intentional, i think shed be glad we caught the pun.
but it is equally possible that it was NOT intentional, and my pointing out the reference will make her very upset that she accidentally chose a pun for her child's name. but... at least she'd be aware that it's a pun?
what would you do? and, if you were in the shoes of my pregnant friend, what would you want me to do?
hanna quinn. i cant read it without immediately thinking skywalker. either my friend agreed to purposely name her daughter for darth vader, or her husband hit the geek jackpot and isnt telling her. because, regardless of whether or not she realizes it, he's a comic con kinda guy... he knows.
^^Id totally do that. Get a super-cute Star Wars onesie and be like "I couldn't resist this when I heard your name choice!" And see what she does/says. It's not malicious and you are expressing excitement over the name (in case it was intentional).
