Should I be offended?

Bruce rants,

people who give their kids place-names as first names, like ‘Chester’, ‘Paris’, ‘Bethany‘ or – especially irritating – ‘India’ or ‘Asia’. They should be forced to change their own name to ‘Thorngumbald’, ‘Pratts Bottom’, or ‘Swinket Mease Rigg’

I shall henceforth be known as Ms. Swinket Mease Rigg, thankyouverymuch … do you think I can register Would be fun to spell out over the phone when asked for my email address.

Presumably, his own parents have had their names changed:

I really, really wanted to name my son after the tiny Somerset hamlet (two houses, two road signs) of Nempnett Thrubwell. Surprisingly, The Missus vetoed this one. Pity.
