Sounds better backwards.

I know you’re one of my kids – I’m just not sure which one.
“I’m’a just gonna give you Richie Petrie’s number. He’s got a story to tell you.”
I like that name.
Mom wanted to name him after his father but wasn’t quite sure, there.
it coulda been ‘sue’…
or ‘tu-ka chinchilla’…
Good short name though: Norbob.
He’s lucky he’s not the younger twin born in Roman times. Their names would be Bob and Not-Bob.
When choosing our son’s name I told my wife I wanted to select one that could not be twisted into easy rhymes and teasing by young kids (me having a first name that made it all too easy for kids to do so when I was school-age). We finally settled on the name ‘Tyler.’
Leave it to his younger sister, at an incredibly young age, to come up with a twist on his name that I did not think of – Tylerrhea.
But do the people always shout when he goes out?
This hit on one of my pet peeves—giving children weird names. When I was a teacher, as I was getting to know my students’ names, I would occasionally come across a student with a strange name. When I made a stab at pronouncing it, the student would roll his/her eyes and give me the correct pronunciation. I could see the frustration that would probably follow them for the rest of their lives, saddled with a name that their parents gave them because they thought it would be cute or different. Parents really need to think about the impact that a strange name is going to have on their child. End rant.
“We call him Markor for short.”
