I was doing some freelance work the other night. It consisted of making some changes to the text of a book - a baby-name book.

The name was "Hugo." There was some history of the name, then it said "this name will be perfect for a stocky toddler."

Well, yeah...but what about for the rest of their life? Truly, very few people stay stocky little toddlers all their life.

In conclusion: naming a kid something that will be cute when they're a baby with no thought to having to live with it the rest of their life? Probably not a good idea.
