Today we turn our attention to some “pet” names some of you give your children that can lead to a breakdown of authority. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard Dads call their sons “buddy” rather than using their given Christian name. “Hey, Buddy!” they’ll say. The nickname Buddy has unhealthy similarities to that alternate name for the Evil One, Beelzebub. [“Bub”=”Bud” linguistically] Not to forget Buddy Holly, who unleashed rock music on American society. Wikipedia tells us that the popularity of the name Buddy peaked around 1940, at the height of Nazi Germany’s power. I could go on, but you can probably already see the dangers inherent in this habit. Just nip it in the bud.
