If their mom and dad like that name so much. Why don't they change their name after the ball park instead of subjecting their child to years of teasing.

You know, you can name your kid whatever you want, I suppose. But research has shown that kids with non-traditional names do less well in life than kids with traditional names ("traditional" being defined as being for each family's culture, background, religion as well as where they are currently living).

Honestly, do some people even THINK about the consequences names have on their children?

"Oh look, there's Wrigley -- let's go chew him up and spit him out!"

Poor kid.

I grew up with a kid named Robin Hood. He was teased and poked at through his entire childhood.

Poor Wrigley has just been sentenced to the same. I feel sorrow.

Well, it could have been worse. They could have named him Corn, Wheat or Green.

This poor kid! Did his parents not think? Before naming our kids we tried to come up with every nickname or tease anyone would come up with. Why would you intentionally give your child a name that he'd be teased for life over? These parents are awful!
