Do you remember your first day of school in France, when the teacher took attendance but she didn’t know anyone yet? She had that list of new names…birth names that parents passed down through eight generations and no one even recognized anymore. You always tried to stop her before she reached your real name, but she never stopped. Alas, the French class would erupt into laughter chanting that horrible name repeatedly!
