Angelina’s Name Game

|

Angelina_nameAngelina Jolie picked up the newest edition to her family/crayon box Thursday in Vietnam as expected — by everyone except for the kid. His caretakers at the orphanage didn’t tell him he was going to be adopted, so upon meeting Angelina, he burst into tears. She tends to have that effect.

Anyway, it’s great that Angelina wants to share her wealth with the needy children of the third world, but there’s an element of this adoption that’s a little unsavory: she changed his name (from Pham Quang Sang to Pax Thien Jolie). The kid is 3-years-old, so it’s not like he’s not going to notice. I mean, I didn’t change the name of my cat when I adopted him for fear of confusing him and he has the intellect of a shoebox. Way to colonize, Ange! [Time]
