In college, I had a classmate and friend, Richard Chiu.

It hurts me to confess it, but it was two years before I dawned on me he had been given a most unfortunate name.

  1. That is childish! I went to school with a kid named Ben Dunn. As a former teacher, I had a student with the last name Lapinas. The first day of school she was referred to as La-penis, and Lapin-ass by my fellow teachers, and when she got to my class I didn’t even bother to say her last name.
