    Funny story:

    In the Jewish faith, when a boy is bar mitzvah'd, the Rabbi refers to him as Master...and then the last name. The boy I knew that was bar mitzvah'd had the last name of Bader.

    You put it together...

    I went to MA school with a Latabia. That sometimes made for comical moments with substitutes or on the first day with new teachers.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, on behalf of your son for resisting your husband's urge to saddle him with a horrible name for the sake of a cheap laugh. Lisp or no lisp, you can bet your boy would have been the object of many unfunny jokes.

    I knew someone who named their daughter "Beautiful". I hope she grows up to be that name.
