There’s this psychologist I know who is so much into studying the Freudian theory and pretty much obsessed with it that when his wife had a baby, he decided to name him Sigmund. I kid you not. You see when it comes to naming kids, parents like to give them a name that they personally like, something that is a great quality perhaps or has a deep meaning to it. Why is that? In the hopes of having the kid take up after that quality and turn out like that. Then of course there are people who have these ways of life and they like to keep them at just that.
In this same category then is where Goth comes in. For some it’s a way of life, for others it’s the special ring to the names that gets them wanting to have a kid take up after these names.
