This one isn’t entirely ridiculous on its face.  What is ridiculous is that Mom KNOWS it will be pronounced wrong an overabundance of times and admits that she doesn’t like that — but STILL plans stick the name on her little bundle of joy.

Isn’t that pretty much like saying, “Huh.  I know that if I stick my leg under the wheel of this tractor-trailer that it will shatter my fibula, and I sure don’t like the idea of a shattered fibula…but fuck it.  I’m going to do it anyway!”?

And Mom, why don’t you think about this for a second — if YOU think it will be annoying correcting people, how annoying do you think your kid will find it?  Or did you not plan to think about his feelings at all?

I know you’ve said you aren’t for this, but at least it isn’t made up. It is a name from the Old Testament, pronounced “Jay-ven”. However, I’m pretty sure it was only chosen due to the fact that it sounds similar to Jayden, Aiden, etc.
