    Ahh thought you might’ve known the people responsible for this, and I assumed if you did, they’d likely have a similarly stupid name for their second child.

    I can’t wrap my head around naming a kid an extremely common name, horribly misspelled.

    Henry is one of the best male names there is.

    it doesn’t spell Kennedy. I guess you kinda have to assume that’s what they were going for.

    My son, due in April, is going to be Henry. I keep referring to him as Hank because I find babies with old man names to be hysterical.

    I have a running joke with my roommates from college that my first born will be “H.W.”

    Henry Wallace... really I just think Henry, or Henré is a badass name.

    It all makes sense now - I was born in April. And the thought of Henry/Hank just running around at the toddler stage fucking shit up. I see myself just sitting back with my hands folded behind my head, like what can ya do? Boys will be boys.

    When you deal with 150-200 patients a day you see a lot of dumb fucking names. I swear some of these people's parents must have been just like "fuck it, put the alphabet in a hat and we just going to pull out random letters and see what happens"
