Personal experiences with the name Wolfgang: | Edit

My youngest son's name is Wolfgang. He is now 14 years old. People, upon hearing his name, seem to love it. They ask if he was named after anyone (no). Teenage girls are fascinated with his name, asking how we decided to name him, etc. (it was husband's idea because it goes with our German last name). The good thing about naming him Wolfgang is that everyone remembers him (and his name). Happily, he's a well-mannered, intelligent young man. If he was a troublemaker, being named Wolfgang would not have been such a blessing.
