More Names

A boy previously named Moses has changed his English name to Zero. I have another boy named Adolf—a name, I realize, which has a long and noble history but my first thoughts are still Buchenwald and Auschwitz. I named a girl "Audrey," but since my Korean partner teacher doesn't like that name, I'm changing it tomorrow. And finally, a boy named Jeff has decided his English name from now on will be Yoda.


  1. Yoda --- I like it .... next a "Hans" ???

  2. It's Han, not Hans. I also have a Luke that I named, but that's after a friend and not Skywalker. Leah (Leia) would be doable. But I draw the line at R2D2 or C3P0.

  3. oops -- that Han Solo/Hansolo/Hans Solo problem
