Baby names generated by a neural network at Stanford University

in iceland, it’s hard to come up with a creative name for a newborn.

a government committee prevents parents

from giving babies names that it deems ‘too weird.’

the committee’s name – mannanafnanefnd.

fame is a series of misunderstandings surrounding a name. – joni mitchell

 i’ve been wondering.

were

greenland and iceland

 somehow

mixed up in the naming process?

was the paperwork confusing?

did no one

catch the error until it was too late?

did someone

not have their glasses on?

was there a translation issue?

why did they not fix it ?

 my theory is

that it would have been

too expensive and too much bother

to change all of the logos on the cocktail napkins

once they had already been printed.

 having

 named

all of

my

3 daughters

all close in age

with

names

that

all begin

with the letter

h

has caused

me to

rarely

if ever

call them

 by their

proper name

at least

on

the first

or

the second

try

and

they’ve

all learned

over time

to just

answer

to

any of them

and

when they

all sign their cards

to me

love

your favorite daughter, h

i know i’ve done it right

one thing they never tell you about child raising is that for the rest of your life, at the drop of a hat, you are expected to know your child’s name and how old he or she is.
