Why would you...

Why, in the world, would you name your child Damien?
This child is cruel and mean...
very smart, but uses knowledge to offend/insult others...
and thinks the world revolves around him.

No, I'm NOT talking about the character in the movie (or book) titled The Omen, but about one of my students. This student of mine has already seen the movie The Omen and LOVES it!! He is very proud of his name...and lives up to it!! Can you believe it?!

Yes, having this child in my classroom is stressful. I understand why people turn to alcohol or drugs...don't worry, I'm not into any of it, just "food".

Future parents of America and elsewhere, BE CAREFUL what you name your child!
Crystal rarely shines,
Precious is only precious in your eyes,
and Purita is rarely "pure".

*There are many other names of students who either live up to their name, or fall very far from it, but at the moment I am too tired to think...

Coco -- Be sure to read Freakonomics if you haven't already. It has a whole chapter about baby names. Parents can really impact a child's future with the simple act of assigning him or her a name!

My b/f's brother's name is "Damian," and that describes him to a T! Hilarious - your last comments... sounds like you had a frustrating day... I feel ya hermana!
