It's all in the name?

I recently came across the name Philander for a kid on one of my surgical pathology reports. I wonder if this person will be marked for life. Anyway, the name does come trippingly off the tongue.

My husband and I spent hours coming up with names for the kiddies and tried to consider all possible weird permutations that might elicit derision from peers. And when he was doing his med school rotation on pediatrics, he wanted to avoid names beginning with B, since BM on the peds service meant bowel movement. By the time I was expecting the twins, he wasn't so worried about B names (I guess he was in shock over the sudden doubling of family size).
