Imagine if your mom had wanted to give you a “Maryland” name and your Dad had wanted to give you a “California” name. You’d probably be named Kansas instead of Ocean.
Let this be a lesson to all expecting parents: If your first baby doesn’t look like the name you picked out, just have another baby!
This could have gone so very, very wrong.
I like to imagine your parents flipping through a cookbook and just assuming it was a book of baby names. Anyway, Coriander is probably better than “Chicken-fried Steak.”
