Re: names

Or what about people who marry....and take on that name?? I worked with an attorney who married a man with the last name Butts. Her name was Scarlet. On my first day of work, when I saw her name on the door "Scarlet Butts, Esq."....I could not stop laughing. When I married the first time....the maid of honor and best man signed the certificate....the best man's name is: John Peter Dickey. He got married, had three boys...they call them the "Dickey Dudes". REALLY!!!

Ignatio = Ignatius. Antonio would be Italian for Anthony, I think. Most of us go through a phase of not liking our given names. Sometimes we later decide we do, sometimes not. I think its a shame, the names some people stick on their offspring, though. Kids get enough teasing in school without having to get it for their name as well. If they can't resist the weird, at least they could make it a middle name (example, one daughter's middle name is 'Constant' because her first, Mikhaila, reminded my spouse of the Michaelis-Menton Constant)!

Sounds like a good Italian name to me. Is it the Italian equivalent of
Anthony? How would you like to be stuck w/ Pamela? Could anything sound
more prim and stuffy? That's why I chopped it down to Pam and have kept
it that way.
