It's a Wonderful Name
As you settle in with a favorite Christmas movie, join me in a little reverie.
You were one of four Jennifers in your seventh-grade English class. You were Jen C. in college. Even out in the working world, you felt that your name was just a placeholder. It didn't set you apart; it wasn't memorable; it didn't reflect what made you uniquely you. If only your parents had been more creative. If only they'd imagined the possibilities of a non-Jennifer future, with name that would make people sit up and take notice...hey, who's that beatific fellow?
Yes, it's your own personal name angel. Call him Klarynce. Klarynce listens to your name woes. He understands. And he offers you the tantalizing chance to live out your "if onlys." Say the word, and he'll rewrite naming history, giving you the life you would have lived with the name of your dreams.
Do you take him up on it? And if so, what name do you choose?
With best wishes of the season,
