So this story has been making the rounds today. Some parents named their kid Hashtag in honor of their obsession with Twitter I guess. Internet is all in a rage about how cruel these parents are, they must have been high blah blah blah. Look those are both valid points of contention but I think this could be much, much worse. Like kids are going to be cruel pretty much regardless of what your name is. As far as I can tell 'Hashtag' doesn't rhyme with any part of the anatomy, it's only 7 letters so Scantrons should be a breeze, and in all likelihood people aren't going to even know what Twitter is in 10 years anyway. I mean technology moves pretty fast folks. This would be like someone naming their kid Prodigy in 1995 or if my parents named me Macintosh in 1984. So yeah it's a little unusual but little Hashtag could have it much worse. Just ask Rudy Gay.
But yeah they were probably high. 95% chance this story is from Washington or Colorado.
PS: If I ever have twins I'm naming them Scorpion and Sub Zero and that is non-neogtiable.
Double PS: Could have been Mulva!
