WHAT'S IN A NAME?

Aah, the name game. Everyone has one and yet nobody knows the turmoil of giving one until they themselves are a parent. I first started naming my unborn children when I was about 13. 1,197 more words

Baby物语

1。我的小名

自从爸爸知道我的存在后,他叫我“小布瓜”。这个名字来自几米的其中一本书,pourquoi (法语:为什么;音译念“布瓜”)。书里说,小孩子有很多问题都得不到解答。爸爸曾经让妈妈读了这本书,所以妈妈也不反对这个小名。我想,只要不是木瓜、冬瓜、南瓜,我也不反对。

过了不久,爸爸让我听粤语童谣,哄我入睡。有一首歌名叫“月光光”,歌词里有个小男孩名叫“虾仔”。结果,爸爸把好听的“布瓜”改成“虾仔”,那是小虾的意思。我和妈妈都不喜欢。妈妈就作弄爸爸,不然叫“囡囡”,是女孩的名字。从那时候开始,我知道爸爸希望我是小男孩,妈妈则希望我是小女孩。我是男的,还是女的?不告诉你答案!

妈妈平常和我沟通时,会叫我“小宝贝”或“baby”。妈妈懂得不同的语言,当然希望我也可以像她一样。取名“小宝贝”或“baby”,可以看得出妈妈的细心和凡事想得远。这两个小名没有性别色彩,却可以让我学习双语。妈妈的用心,我感应到了。
