Ah...loved this story. As a shy kid, I hated having a different name and wanted to be just a Mary or Debbie or Linda. So this story made me smile. Great writing.
A very enjoyable read. If parents only knew what impact names had on their children I wonder if they would give the child another name or not. Thank you and God bless.
gosh what a dragon that midwife was.... i found myself getting quite angry with her. names are so important and many people wait a few days before deciding on the childs name .. The Cheek of her.. see i got really engaged with your story.
Good story telling! I was hoping for an ending though. I hope the parents were inspired to break from a tradition they no longer wished to follow and blazed a new trail!!!
How I do feel sorry for that child if they choose to keep the "Aloysius" tradition going! I've always thought it was kinda silly how people do that. But maybe this family will break the century-old tradition. :) Great story for the topic! I liked the description of the nurse being like the grim reaper.
