    Default do you think he knows what his name means?

    I'm watching the college soccer final now and one of the UVA players is named Hunter Jumper.

    Do you think his parents did that on purpose? Or just liked the name Hunter and had no idea?

    I giggle every time they announce his name. Poor guy!

    I'm watching it now and didn't even catch that couldn't imagine doing that to a kid. But then there are kids named ESPN so...

    I did ask BF if I could name my next cat Zippy (our mascot is Zippy the Kangaroo-we're the Akron Zips) and he just laughed at me.

    Well, that's better than the player that played for I think it was UNC sevearl years ago. His first name was Simian, last name I believe Jones or something like that.

    I heard of a boy named Cavallo - I think it means "horse" in Italian. Done on purpose.
