Naming a baby is big responsibility. Nobody knows that now more than Amy Schumer, and my parents…

Amy Schumer just changed her almost 1-year old sons name. The boys name was Gene Attell Fischer… which if you read all together sounds like “genital.” So, Amy and her husband have changed the boys name to Gene David Fischer.

As soon as I saw this story, I immediately thought of my parents, because well…. the same thing happened to me when I was a baby. My parents legally named me Cullen, and that is what I went by for the first month or two of my life. That is, until my mother would tell people my name, and they would ask if it was pronounced, “Colon?!”

My mother, realizing her daughter (aka me) would have to go through her whole life with people thinking her name was pronounced “Colon” decided to change my name to Cameron.

YEP!

So Gene Fisher, I feel for you! haha
