Monday, May 16, 2005 AD Yet Another Reason Hyphenated Names Are Stupid I just picked up a phone message from someone with a multiplicity of appellations, each of which had three or four syllables, and all of which ran together into one indistinguishable aural blur. I do not have the faintest clue what this woman's name is! Hyphenated names are a bloody nuisance and anyone who chooses to use one ought to be smacked.
ADDENDUM: Via IM, Paulo threatened to hyphenate Koslowski-Ordoveza, but then he backed down. I think he was afraid of getting smacked. Alas, this was not, as I had hoped, a veiled announcement of rapidly approaching nuptials. We did, however, discuss the Filipino tradition of adding the wife's maiden name as a middle name, and came up with some great names for their kids: Therese Anne Koslowski Ordoveza (TAKO), Wanda Anne Catherine Koslowski Ordoveza (WACKO) and Sylvester Ian Charles Koslowski Ordoveza (SICKO).
