Why would anyone name their child FRIDAY? I saw it on a name tag at the grocery store tonight. FRIDAY. Poor thing. She must get razzed endlessly.

People worry too much about what other people name their kids. If you don't like it, don't use it.

It could be a nickname. My neighbor kid goes by Rocket. His parents didn't name him Rocket, but the whole neighborhood calls him Rocket. 🚀

My oldest daughter has a strange nickname that is sooooo far off from her real name. But, that's what she goes by and has since she was about 3. My youngest 2. My middle does not have a nickname and doesn't want one.

What, her name tag? That would be rude, don't you think?

It could be a nickname. My mom's name is Mary, she goes by Missie.

Friday is the name of a character in Robinson Crusoe. Crusoe himself named the native to the Caribbean Island after saving him. Maybe she liked the book. I like the name, but not on this implication since the devotion to Crusoe was a slave relationship. But its a cute name. Ive heard of Sunday too.
