Oswald's Name
27 July 2008 | by donniezzSee all my reviews

In response to the Social Worker who was worried that children would grow up and learn that Oswald was the name of a murderer and somehow this would cause them stress- I must say that is about the silliest thing I have ever heard. Lee Harvey Oswald, of course, has two other names as well, should we likewise ban Lee and Harvey? Will listening to Paul Harvey or watching Harvey Kietel in a movie be a traumatic experience? I know I am being a little over the top here, but I I'm just trying to make a point. If these kids (and my daughter is one of them) grow up attaching a good connotation to "Oswald" then the show has successfully rescued an unpopular name.

By the way, I'm sure the name "Oswald" was chosen because it begins with an "O" thus "Oswald the Octopus." I heard the first two choices for names were "Orenthal" (as in Orenthal James Simpson) and Othello (of Shakespeare fame)and strange enough- they both were murderers too!
