ATLANTA—Saying it was standard for any expecting mother’s 20-week checkup, ultrasound technician Jean Krebacher asked one of her pregnant patients Tuesday if she would like to know the name of her unborn child. “This is the moment of truth—I can tell you the first name now, or you can wait to find out until delivery,” said Krebacher, assuring the mother that no matter what, she should rest easy because the child had developed a normal three-syllable signifier, and its vowels were forming perfectly according to schedule. “It’s totally up to you. If you want it to be a surprise, I won’t tell you. But if you’re planning on doing a name-reveal party, I can write it on a slip of paper and put it in an envelope for you to open whenever you want.” At press time, Krebacher reportedly had to comfort the sobbing mother after revealing that her baby would be born a Gunther.
