Hi My Name is " @"

A Chinese couple tried to name their baby the " @", saying that it translates in to love him. While the at symbol is familiar to Chinese e-mail users, they often use the English word "at" to sound it out, which with a drawn out "T" sounds something like "ai ta", or "love him", to Mandarin speakers. Wow, could you imagine what people would call the little boy. I mean how would you write his name at or ai ta?
