I come from parents who thankfully gave us boring names. Their only hangup about the names were that we were named what we were going to be called. So I have a sister named Sue, just Sue, not Susan. I worked in a pharmacy and saw firsthand how painful it was to have names that are different. One family named all of their boys after the father (Richard James, Richard David, Richard Mark, etc.) A real pain to submit the insurance forms to be reimbursed for Richard. And our joke is in order to be called to be a General Authority, you must have an initial and a middle name (N Eldon Tanner...)

Thank them really big

Did you see the article that Black kids with rare names often do not get an interview?..I read years ago that teachers have a bias againt odd names..Best to go with the trendy or old names..

BTW I have a son that has always been called by his middle name so he uses his inital first...so some non Mormons do that too
