Who decided to start naming little girls “Abcde”? How’s it pronounced? Apparently something like “Abe Sahdy” with the accent on the first syllable. What’s it mean? “Child of an idiot” is the generally accepted meaning. That may not be the intended meaning though. Beware mocking the ridiculous name. You might get in trouble. But not in as much trouble in the airport as Abcde’s little brother Hijk!
