SPROUTING NAMES

"Allison" and "George" are names of American convenience for the sprout-producing Changs.

She was born 38 years ago as Jiachen Wang in northern China. When she got to Texas, her cousin in Richardson couldn't pronounce her given name and called her Allison. His real name is Cheng Ming Chang. George sounded like his Chinese nickname.

To keep things U.S. simple, the couple named their 5-year-old daughter June (the month she was born) and 6-year-old son Jordan (the only name in the baby book that they could agree on).
