    Why would the name "Albin" ever have such a stupid spelling? Written languages are, by design, supposed to have a connection to the features of the spoken language. Is this not true in Sweden? I thought the video would go on to explain this point but meh, I'll go fuck myself.

    Parents, question:
    Why would you want to name your child with stupid things like Brfx whatever?
    Remember, this is a name YOU will have to pronounce and say to everyone you meet. EVERYONE. Even if you've already told them why, you're going to have to tell them all the bloody time. "Oh it's pronounced Alvin, oh it's Bobby Tables..." Your kid is also going to have to do it as well.
    Also, don't name them after a fad. No Game of Thrones characters or Twilight names. Remember, these are names they'll be having for the rest of their lives... or at least until they hit 18 or something. Make sure it's not a name they'll resent you for and want changed ASAP when the fad is a subject of ridicule or in the case of GoT... well what was an "inspiring", weird name is now even more awkward.

      Probably not but if you wind up dead, it's going to be a lot harder to identify you and maybe it'll be a laugh on a cop show "Wait, so our John Doe is actually named John Doe? Haven't seen that before!"
