Putting the Shoe on the Other Foot



Reading Jennifer Savage's column ("Five Things," May 16) on naming last week (which listed for example children's names such as the poorly imaged "Huckleberry" or grossly misspelled "Leasaugh"), reminded me of a simple rule I always thought might help limit such practices. When a child turns 12, he or she gets to switch names with one of the parents.
