Chinese Couple Attempts to Name Baby “@”

All I can say is, wow. On the plus side, they probably would have spelled it right. Despite the non-traditional spelling of my own name, or perhaps because of it, unusually spelled names are my pet peeve.

“Kimber Lei” is not unique and special. They’re still gonna call the kid “Kimberly”, it will just be misspelled by people around her all the poor girl’s life–yes, this is the voice of experience.

I can spell “at” though. Candy calls it a sign of the times. I, well, what I call it is pretty non-PC, so let’s leave it at that.
