I hate it when people name their kids nicknames. Give the kid the actual first name and call her by the nickname. But, at least this kid isn’t named after a fruit.

What? The kid’s name is not Aaron Littleton?

Beautiful name although I did read the last name as “Raving B!tch” at first

@Alexandra = I had the same reaction with the last name…took a moment to get past that…I kept saying “b.tch” and my co-worker was like “Oh no, you’ve got that wrong!’ oops!
