What they don't seem to understand is just how selfish they are being by refusing to let him have a name that lets him blend in with all the other boys in their area. Save the embarrassing and/or family names for the middle name that few people will ever see. The very last thing kids want is to be different from their peers. They only want to be different from their parents, but not in a dorky way.Originally Posted by ubidiah;3920791;
I think the most likely scenario is Francoise will learn quickly to pick up a nick name or just call himself Franky. Either way he will likely have to hide it from his pretentious parents, which will mean that at some point his parents will notice that he never seems to bring any of his school friends around. Of course, with a father who dresses like Simon, there could be any number of reasons why a child who has begun to reach an age of self awareness.
