Well, Kriston, I read "Protecting the Gift" and usually take your position, but my heart definitly skipped a beat here.

Ouch!!!! Scary.

I'm with both of you on the general point and I've read "Protecting the Gift" too. Sometimes I feel like the folks around me think I'm a crazy mom who gives her kids way too much independence. On the real name thing though - thanks to ethnicity and my parents misspelling a traditional family name (what is with that?) - I can easily be located in a search on first name alone. crazy

Anyway, I like your spelling, Trinity. Makes the place more homey, not too scary.
