The Kiss-of-Death Names

parents sometimes give to babies.

Like Malice, for instance. He grew up to be the guy willy-nilly setting off Molotov cocktails on cars on Whyte Ave. last weekend. Uh, any questions?

What you are, what you are destined to become is often set by your first name. People often grow into these names.

Think of the day when Malice checked a dictionary and found out who he really ‘was’ or the way he would be regarded by others, or the way that he was ‘expected to be’ in life.

Think what you like, but I believe people start to become what their names suggest right from the get-go. It is the first sign of destiny and a not-so-subtle motivator or indicator of what a person will turn out to be.
