WHAT NOT TO NAME YOUR BABY
When I was pregnant with Anna, Thomas bought this book. We had a great laugh wading through it in bed every night. It contained obvious no-nos like Adolf and Fanny but one I don't remember whether or not it contained was Brett. Brett isn't a name that would have crossed my mind as an obvious taboo but today I had a visit from a teacher friend (who shall remain anonymous). She has a child called Brett in her class. Apparently on no less than 5 occasions she has accidentally called him Brat when shouting at him to behave in front of his classmates! Oops... Freud would be proud of her!
