Creative Names

Today’s parents creatively name their children names we have no hope of pronouncing Mee-ah is My-ah and also Mwyah are all three spelled the same way But pronounced totally differently And of course, they have all been assigned to the same classroom. How much sense does that make? About as much as assigning Ralph, Ralphie and Raphael to the same class. And yes, they are in there too.

Hello Caren, just reading your poem just now, made me burst into laughing. I wonder why parents name their children with hard to pronounce name makes me wonder. All i can say is the poor child stuck with that type of name . Hugs.

They want to "buck the system" we have so many fabricated names now, I have no hope of pronouncing most of them correctly.

If I had that situation, I'd probably nickname them quickly, or resort to calling all students by their last names. Likely, then I'd have six Smiths and three Joneses! Can't win for losing!

I do not know their last names either; I have been assigned to two schools this year - one has 323 students, the other has 645 students.
