CUPS 7: Joseph

My last name is Morrison, which means that when we were going to have a baby, the first name Morris was 100% completely and fully off the table in a way that no other name could possibly be. My roommate in college took a class by a guy named Jake Jacobs, which I always thought was about the craziest name I’d ever heard of. Neither the first name or last name is bad of course, but if your last name is Jacobs, before you even think about names at all, don’t you take Jacob out of the name running? I just can’t really understand the reasoning. Do parents go ‘well, we could spend a lot of time trying to come up with a different first name, but we’re really busy today, and these DVR’ed tv shows ain’t gonna watch themselves’? This will forever be a mystery to me.
