"Always end the name of your child with a vowel,
so that when you yell the name will carry."
I suppose it's possible that one of my three readers doesn't really know me and therefore, does not know that my name is Emery, not eclaires. Well, my name IS eclaires, but maybe that's a post for another time. Anyhow...
I know I should find this flattering, but somehow, as someone who never had to "share" her name or be relegated to using the first initial of her last name in order to be identified in her 3rd grade class, I find this reality encroaches on my sense of individuality. Seriously identity crisis. I'm going to focus on feeling flattered, since I was born 27 years before my name first appears in the top 1000 names. By then, I was the coolest person ever and everyone wanted their children to take after me... right?
