Felon

by Lemonjello Redenbacher on August 25, 2011

I bet you think I hate this name, huh? ¬†Actually – it’s perfect. ¬†Any kid whose parents would even consider naming him Felon has absolutely ZERO chance of making it without a criminal record.

Actually there’s a story of a guy who named one son “Winner” and one son “Loser”, and they turned out exactly the opposite. Loser is successful and Winner is… well, a felon. I think it’s all in Freakonomics. You work against a name like Felon, so if the kid’s more intelligent than its parents it will probably do the same.

Maybe we are pronouncing it incorrectly…Fee-lon?
