We are the ones we've been waiting for
A terrible name can always be replaced. A friend of mine immigrated from India to an all-white town when he was three and in order to better "fit in" he assumed the first name of a popular TV character as his nickname. He basically went by that name until a few months ago when he decided to go back to his original name. But coming from a bad place probably leaves emotional scars that affect the person you turn out to be. So I'd choose the funny name any day.
Funny name, I guess. Although I hate my name and am looking forward to changing it someday when I get married (hopefully). Not that I couldn't just change it anyway, but that would just be weird. When I was a kid, I used to fantasize about being an 'Anderson' or an 'Olson' or something - as only a kid in Minnesota could do.Now watch, I'll fall in love with some guy with a name even less easy to say and spell than my own.
