Satran says she occasionally hears from people who have really come to regret the name they chose for their kid.
“Most often people will give their child a name they settled on during the pregnancy, only to find that when they're saying it out loud and using it for a real live baby, it just doesn't feel right,” she said “Sometimes they try to wait and get used to it, only to find it feels worse over time.”
Safran says that if you must make a switch, the earlier the better, though she has talked to parents of 1-year-olds who are contemplating a change. According to BabyCenter.com, infants don’t begin to recognize their names until about 5 months, so if you want to avoid confusing the little one it might be best to use that date as the point of no return.
We can only imagine how the mother of little Megatron is going to feel in a few months. What, you didn’t hear about this? In February, Mike Affinito started a Facebook group called, “MY SISTER SAID IF I GET ONE MILLION FANS SHE WILL NAME HER BABY MEGATRON.” Currently, the group has almost 2 million fans, which means that if Affinito’s sister is a woman of her word, the little boy, due in August, is going to named after the leader of the Decepticons, the villains from the Transformers series of cartoons, comic books and, most recently, blockbuster movies.
Starscream Schreiber does have a nice ring to it.
