What’s in a name? Well, it’s probably the personality traits of your parents. If you’re named John, your parents are boring as hell. If your name is Chastity, your parents had incredibly unfair expectations of you. If you’re named Blanket, your dad is a freak. And if you choose to shorten your name to “B.J.”, then your parents must be evil incarnate to give you a name so horrifying that you’d rather be referred to as “B.J”.
