  • "I called my son Reed, but he always gets called Reece, which is annoying as I don't like having to correct people all the time on it. As another interesting point to this name ~ although I am not religious, I like the reference in the Torah ~ "A person should always be supple as a reed and should not be as firm as a cedar.""
