    I looked up the answer and the child's name is "What", because
    it is stated there without a question mark.

    I don't feel this is particularly funny or clever, as the first four
    are plausible to maaaybe plausible as actual names, whereas
    "What" is not.

    I'm not giggling, so funny, no, but I've surprised myself that I didn't catch that. I should have. BUT!! as an exercise in facing how little we pay attention to what is right in front of us, I'll concede to its lesson.

    wouldn't you agree it would feel more clever if they used something
    that is at least recognisable as a name? eg

    the last name requires you have a little Faith.

    after those four, the fifth name is clear as Crystal.
