Family Regex

Some families have a crest, mine has a regex:

Well technically all families have a regex, but most of them are something overly-specific like “(Stuart|Nancy|Peter|Mackenzie)” or something overly-general like “\w{5,9}”.

A good family regex doesn’t just happen; it takes years of planning. First off, meet, date and then eventually marry (or don’t, it’s 2017) someone who basically shares the same name as you. Next, have one or more kids and make sure their names don’t deviate too far from yours. Remember, we’re playing the long game here. The rewards of a slimmed-down family regex can’t be over-stated.

For our next kid, we’re still trying to decide between “Pekok” and “Poxron”.
