"Could you just call me Pigeon?” he asked the teacher when she read his name.When I was pregnant with Mark, we consulted Alex about what he thought the baby's name should be. His suggestion was "Santa" which Jeff and I (taking a clue from Victoria Beckham) rejected. Here are 10 more names that we did NOT consider but which have all been encountered as the name of a real person by someone I actually know.
“Does your mother call you Pigeon?”
“Then to me you are Paul.”
“Nathan Sutter,” the teacher read.
“My mother never calls me Nathan.”
“Is it Nate?”
“She calls me Honeylips."
