I meant that little Jesus's parents, when they named him, never thought he'd turn into a little thug, and Athena's parents really hoped she wouldn't be a dim bulb. I meant that you really can't pin all your hopes for your child on its name. You can't say "We named her Miracle Heaven because she is going to be such a joy" because her being named Miracle Heaven doesn't have anything to do with whether people find her a joy to be around.
Miracle Heaven is actually the name of a child in a friend's class, easily the most obnoxious student he has ever had to deal with. She is unattractive, not bright, disobedient, disrespectful and very defiant. She'd be the same way if her name was anything else.
