My name is @. Nice to meet you.

How would one pronounce that? “AT?” Why are we asking? Oh, because a Chinese couple has petitioned to name their child @. Like…the symbol. Ironically, when you read their argument, which lays out how it’s pronounced in Mandarin, and translates to “love him,” it does make, dare we say, a slight bit of sense. But does that make it OK? Between shooting their clouds with weather bullets, and sending their children to Internet-addiction summer camp, the Chinese sure are up to some crazy stuff. Next thing you know, we’ll have famous people naming their children Apple, Ziggy, or even Boy Genius. Oh…
