That is interesting about the difference in culture between SEE and ASL. Is it possible that the parents (or child) liked the sign in SEE for Hunter better as a name, but in general they speak ASL?
I took an ASL class about 5 years ago, and I actually loved the sentence structure of ASL; it was so much simpler than having to remember a bunch of pronouns. A couple of years ago I happened to be looking for Oragel in a store and needed help. The employee I found was deaf, so I just signed "Baby teeth hurt. Medicine?" and she got it. I was so happy and proud.

I watched the video twice and I watched the name being signed carefully. I just can't not even figure out what dangerous weapon that resembles. Big fail.
