    There have been considerable lobbying efforts to name my first born Max Payne, either Maximus or Maxine depending on the sex. You, sir, have just placed another arrow in my oppositional quiver and for that, I thank you.Report

    Have his middle name start with an “H”.

    Harold, perhaps. Hershel. Herbert. Horton. (Hussein!!!)

    The important part is that when the child is asked “What does the ‘H’ stand for?”, he or she can stand up and punch the other person in the nose. When the (now bleeding) person looks up from the ground, your child can answer “It stands for ‘Hardcore’.”Report
