Practical reflections from a mother approaching Valentine's Day in 100 or fewer words:
Never once have I regretted the names we selected for our three children. Notwithstanding my obvious bias, I'm entirely convinced that my husband and I did a smashing job with this task. We're top-notch, grade-A, highly skilled child namers.
That being said, today would be a good day to mention that selecting a ten-letter name for your kid has its drawbacks when that child is four and needs to print her name repeatedly on valentines.
