    Trent is pretty self explanatory. However, despite the fact that is not at ALL an unusual name, NO ONE ever gets it right when they hear it.

    "Trench?", "Trick?", "Chen?". Our next door neighbors, who have known Trent since the day we brought him home, are STILL convinced that his name is "Prince".

    I still read Nia's name the same as Mia even though I know it's not pronounced the same. I can't help it.
