i get it now lx. the point is a good one.

i am the 6th straight first born boy with the same first and last name. 6 generations of 'tranes have ended with me. i am very glad that i had a daughter so that i didn't have to tell my dad that there was no way my son was getting that name to carry on any tradition. all i want is for her (and the soon-to-be kid #2) to strike their own path and be whatever type of person brings them peace and happiness. all naming traditions do is to create an expectation that they will be a chip off the ol' block. one of the last things to hold any relevance in terms of their happiness is my name and my dreams.
