Picks Nose During Lunch Has Spoken

However, there are turn offs about naming the Native-American way. For instance, we can have two Andis or several Alexanders in the same neighborhood. But two or more Dances With Wolveses, or Kick Twice When Listening To Jazzes is not acceptable. Because, for one, Wolveses is grammatically wrong.

And two, the people sharing the name will have to change into something more specific, like Twirl with Wolves or Hoola-hoop with Wolves. That could be ugly.

And let's face it, in the current society we're living in, we won't get names as grant as Kill Bears With Bare Hands. Oh, no. Like Paul Reiser says, we might end up with names such as Whines For Ice Cream, Throw Up His Breakfast, or Picks Nose During Lunch.
