Of course there's a website devoted to this: The Institute for Naming Children Humanely. They say "A child's name is the most important label he or she will ever receive. It will stay with the child throughout their whole lives. Parents who choose names poorly create misleading labels for their children. These labels can cause their children to be mocked, stereotyped, or ostracized. Mocked, stereotyped, and ostracized children grow to become demented adults."
Gothamist agrees and has been fascinated with names. One important name is deemed acceptable, but INCH fails to delve into other issues. The problem is that people will find a way to mangle names no matter what...and what about the last name? Kids are cruel and will taunt with whatever is at their disposal, so last names are fair game as well as out of parents' control. Most of the times.
Gothamist's obsession with names.
