Keep A Name Until You’re Undead

| Learning | September 9, 2013

(I teach in a school where the students are encouraged to pick their own ‘English’ names. These names become registered and official in their transcripts midway through grade 11, so a handful of my grade 10 students are still changing names.)

Teacher: “Did [student] tell you that he’s thinking of changing his name?”

Me: “No, he didn’t. What is he changing it to?”

Teacher: “I’m not sure. He said something about the bad guy in The Walking Dead.”

Me: “Does he mean ‘The Governor?'”

Teacher: “God, I hope so.”
