    Kids with names like that usually adopt a nickname quickly.

    Yes, they generally do. This one cat, however, didn't have a nickname. One of my co-worker's husband's was the kid's band director.

    I'm having a really rough time saying Adolf's name this year. His parents are African immigrants. Is it possible they don't know about the name?

    True, but they usually only call him Rupp.

    It's five weeks in, I just take a deep breath and call on "Adolf" now. Inward cringe be damned.

    When in doubt, shorten it. There was a really funny guy from Iran in one of my freshman college classes. He didn't take anything seriously including his name, Mohammed. He went by Moe.

    Call him 'Dolf. I bet Dolf Lundgren was once an Adolf.

    My next door neighbor is Mohammed. My children don't even say anything at all about that--there are so many international types where we live and a mosque a mile away, to boot.

    So was Dolph Shayes, an NBA player in the 60s. He had a son who also played in the NBA. He named him Danny
