[How would you like to be named after your birth order?]
Just like everyone who's anyone in ancient Rome: Quintus, Sixtus, Septimus, Octavian, Decimus
... Maybe I'll name the next baby Septimus!
I know a couple who named their first baby girl "Celeste Jewel" (celestial, if you say it fast enough).
I just cut and pasted that article into an email to a friend and I think my spell-checker blew up! :)

When I was a kid growing up Mormon in Alabama--where we have our own unique naming rituals--I wondered where some of the names I heard, those of transplanted Utah Mormons, came from.
One that I remember was a husband whose name was "DeLon," and their first child, a boy, was then named "Deldon."
I have NO IDEA why, but for some reason a guy named "DeLon" should obviously have a son named "Deldon."

IMHO, Of all the names in the Cream of the Crop,...are merely Mohammed by any other name. ....At least Muslims keep to one false name.
