Dean Pees From New England To Baltimore

Longtime readers may be aware that I'm a big fan of name fusion as a solution for naming children of enlightened couples. I was thinking of this as I read the news that Dean Pees has been named linebacker coach of the Baltimore Ravens. How can you let your daughter go around being named "Laura Pees"?

Hyphenation doesn't help that much here, though a name like Pees-Smith or whatever is a little better than Smith-Pees. Name fusion makes available even better options like Peeth. Though really, just giving your kids the wife's name would be a good thing to do if you're not feeling very creative.

Quite honestly, speaking as Laura Pees, it has never been too much of a problem. I guess my father just raised me to consider the source, and anyone who has a problem with it, has a problem with it. I respect my name because I respect my family. I even had a hard time giving it when I got married.
