This is hilarious.
And it reminded me so much of my own class. My name was so damn common during that particular era, that you could easily find at least ten girls with same name in one class.
There was this terrible lack creativity during that time (when I was not yet born... obviously). Or may be everybody just wanted to be "in tune" with the new trend of names. So the result was you could easily have one whole class of kids having same name.
The most serious problem of having a common name is people end up giving you some weird pet name, or even worse, they just start using your surname as your name instead. Anyway, I suffered a lot until.... I went to Hongkong for some training.
My name was no more common there.... but nobody could pronounce it in my class. They tried couple of times and finally decided to call me "dba" instead.
I hate all those typical, common Indian names, which are difficult to pronounce.
