The ambiguous names of our kids --- Robin, Gray, Merle --- occasionally give us a chuckle at the expense of erstwhile privacy-invaders who guess wrong. And at least twice now, well-intentioned colleges have made the mistake that is the archetypal red-blooded boy's fantasy: one son was assigned to an all-female dormitory; the other son received a recruitment pitch from a women-only school. (Note: since the generation of this post, the other son had also been offered a room in the all-female dorms)

I'm surprised that more young men don't change their names ...
