Olllld story, but i've always wondered about that choice, not because
it was a conlang, but because of how the language is so tied with
Klingon culture, which doesn't really have the same set of values that
we do. Maybe he was hoping to impart some of the strength and self
confidence of it onto his son....

then again, maybe he was just a bit weird. ;) I'm voting for the former.
