    All I'll say is this Internet controversy comes on a perfect day for the producers of Fox News, I'm sure.

    The real criminals here are abcde’s grandparents, who could only think of “traci” for their daughter’s name. If only they knew how unique and creative she was they would have come up with something like “trey-c” or “treky” not some lame ass traci with an i. Hell, they could have named her trace-eye.

    For efficiency sake, Qwerty would have been a better name.

    The final line of the story deserves a "No shit"

    "A search on the Social Security Administration's website found "Abcde" is not among the top 1,000 most popular names for any year of birth since 2000."

    I am willing to bet the little girl didn't say, "Mom, why is she laughing at my name?" Maybe it was, "Oh no, here we go again." But there is no chance this is the first time the girl has been confronted with this.

    I’m sure it’s pronounced “Madison.”
