"My name is Dirk Jr. I am named after my father. I was born in 1988, and he was born in 1963.
The insults seem to stay strong through elementary school. (If you give your child this name, teach him responsibility and how to be tough early. Chances are he/she will have a bully or 2.)
Might even want to teach them about fighting at an earlier age. How it's wrong or what not. Self defense at least. For the love of the name "Dirk" please, at least self defense people.
