What's In A Name?

I took the Boy to music school today as I didn't have work. He's in Firebird class and I hadn't seen it before. The teacher's name is Mrs Christmas. I asked Yu-Jin the names of his classmates.
"That's Claudia. That's Xavier (It was actually Ezekiel as Xavier was late for class). And that's Woods."
"Woods? That's a strange name," I said.
"Oh. No, no. That's Forrest."

And I thought I'd given my boy a strange name.

He was on the right track. His name isn't strange, it is just spelled differently from how it sounds.

:-))) Well, was close!
Xavier sounds very Bavarian and reminds of the very bad singer Xavier Naidoo!
