What's in a name?

My good friend Lady Simzie is about to have a baby boy. Lil' G is due in March, so for the last several months, LS and her husband (Big G) have been researching and discussing and debating names for their first son.

I empathize with their struggle. I think one's name can carry great significance and deep meaning. Even on a shallow level, a name is the first frontier to one's identity.

The residents of Clark, Texas, with a population of 125, have agreed to change their town's name to DISH, which is a satellite TV system owned by Echo-Star Communications. In exchange, the residents will get free satellite TV for 10 years.
