Pinag-uusapan ngayon sa social media ang kalalabas pa lamang na sanggol dahil sa kakaiba nitong pangalan.
Ayon sa kanyang Daddy na si Mac Eightyfive Pascual, na isang web developer, pinangalanan nila ng kanyang asawa na si Salie ang kanilang unico hijo ng Hypertext Markup Language Rayo Pascual, HTML for short.
Umani naman ito ng samu’t-saring komento mula sa netizens, madami ang natuwa sa uniqueness ng pangalan at sa hatid nitong good vibes sa social media:
“Pa-code nga po.”
“Malaya naman tayo mamili ng baby name. Walang basagan ng trip.”
“It’s for the benefit of the kid. No NBI clearance hits.”
“I don’t think it’s selfish, unless the name went too obvious as a joke. It’s such a lovely name like owned by a genius. I hope it would have a positive effect to the child.”
“Ay sige, gagayahin ko. Since Teacher ako, RPMS ini-name ko sa magiging anak ko—Results-Based Performance Management.”
Marami sa netizens ang hindi sang-ayon sa pagpapangalang ginawa ng mga magulang kay baby Hypertext Markup Language o HTML. Basahin ang kanilang mga naging concern:
“Upon investigation, the Tita’s name is Sincerely, the other one is Spaghetti and the Father’s name is Macaroni 85. So the ridiculousness starts from the grandparents. They were featured sa Rated K for their uniqueness.”
“All I can say is that parents giving these kinds of “unique” names to their children are being plain selfish. They’re just giving unnecessary hassle to their children in the future in exchange for their “uniqueness.” A good thing though is that under the law a person can change his first name on the grounds of it being ridiculous, among others.”
“Dear soon-to-be-parents, a child’s name is the sweetest sound in the whole world. Please be considerate. Not kidding. I’m a teacher and you have no idea how difficult it is for a kid with a long name to write on school documents. We have to squeeze that name into tiny blocks when needed. For the love of God, be practical. Unique doesnt necessarily mean cool in the long run. Ive had kids crying because during exams, they are writing down their names and the rest of the class is already in question #3.”
“He may be a web developer but he ain’t bright enough to know his son will be subjected to a lot of bullying in the future. The dad might as well change his own name to HTML, he wanted the name anyway. Just saying.”
“The parents think it’s cool but it’s not. If I were the child, when I grow up I will sue my parents for being so irresponsible and insensitive in giving me that kind of name. Kaloka!”
Kung magkaka-anak ka, anong ipapangalan ninyo ng asawa mo?
