A Boy Named Sy

You need to know about A Boy Named Sue, a song written by Shel Silverstein and made famous by the man in black himself.

Fun story, right? But who would name a boy Sue for real? Well, funny story...

I was talking to a Danish couple who came into the Scanningsklinikkens while Rachelle was in the sonogram room learning that we're having a girl. While she was getting this wonderful news, I was learning about Danish pronounciations of Sy's name. The more standard spelling of Sy's name, "Silas" is quite common over here, and it is pronounced like "See-las", while our spelling, "Sylas", would be prounced here in Denmark like "Soo-las"...so "Sy" would become "Sue".

I hope he never comes seeking revenge.
