    How is Carbon Dioxide Rogers any worse than Moon Unit Zappa?

    Basically if your parents are rich/famous it's okay. You won't get teased because everyone would want to be friends with the child who has rich/famous parents.

    Aside from this article, Ms Rogers is neither, ergo her child would be teased.
    If the only reason you think your software is better is because it's FOSS, you need to write better software

    - Hi boy, what's you name?
    - Carbon Dioxide Rogers
    - Wow, what kind of weird parents have you got?
    - Hi girl, what's you name?
    - Moon Unit Zappa
    - Wow, what kind of weird... aw, yes.

    What a world we live in, to be made fun of more for having a unique name, than for having a generic name; and then going back and being bias of the unique name, based on the social position of the child.

    Still, if I were going to be called by my first name, I think Carbon is a lot nicer sounding than Moon.

    It's becoming rarer to find kids without rare names, anymore.

    I think the psychologists made a bad judgement - I doubt people would tease the kid. I mean, it's a really cool name, what's there to tease about?

    - Haha, you have the same name as a molecule, and you suck!

    I think either people will like it, or they won't give a **** about it. But who knows.
