Homework Help: English

This is my first paragraph of my essay. Help!

Imagine being given a name that every kid would make fun of and everyone always questioning “Why would your parents do such a thing?” The man knew the pros and cons of having such a very unusual name, because he has lived with it all of his life. The bullies from his childhood would call him Oliver Tolliver, from Bolivar, and this made him extremely conscientious about his name. The kids would tell him that he was never going to be anyone important because of a name like his. It wasn’t until he saw an article written by CNN Living on parents giving their children very usual names, that he realized he could use his name to his advantage. Oliver Toliver was the sloppily dressed, wealthy businessman, who now had the state of the art mansion, but because of his penny pinching ways, you would never have known it.
