I used to think that the parents of neglected children, actually chose names that they specifically hated, so if they hated the names George and Karen, for instance, then the pregnant mother would punch her stomach and say 'if you keep kicking my stomach, then I'm naming you George ________ or Karen ________ when you are born!
