Child named Degree

Can't stop laughing..
I was buying mangoes at the junction while waiting for change I saw a woman with a little child.
The child was walking a bit faster than the woman and the woman shouted;
"Degree wait for me".
I was so amazed hearing that name.
So to satisfy my curiosity, I walked closer to the woman and asked;
"Maa, why do u call this child degree?"
The woman laughed and said,
"I sent her mother to the University and this is what she brought home..."

Dont laugh alone pls.
