Le'Genius Wisdom <lastname>

I heard the news article about him on the radio this morning. Seems like Le'Genius Wisdom fell into the "exact opposite" category that often goes along with virtue names.

I discovered that Anastasia Tiberius won't be burdened with that name after all. "Tiberius" is a family joke name for a baby in the womb. Anastasia doesn't yet have a middle name, so they threw in the Tiberius for fun.

I like Tiberius for that purpose.  All our not-yet-quite-ready-for-birth babies were 'Rupert'.

Did I say earlier that my acquaintances named their baby James Tiberius Lastname? They didn't use his middle name much (but then, I haven't seen them since James was less than a year old).
I guess it's more normal for boys than girls, but it was still odd (and yes, they were big Trekkies).

As a coworker remarked, this child's mother was not a spelling bee champion....

From one of the community threads on a baby app: Curren'cee.

I saw "Money" used as the name of a dog on a daytime tv show earlier this week (Judge Judy?) - Curren'cee might make a good name for one of Money's littermates....but for a human?

Oh, I don't know.  You could make a whole Curren'cee family out of your change purse I suppose.  You could name one of your kids Penny, another Dima, then Nicole, then Quarterae, and you could all jump in your car and go visit your Uncle Fitty Cent.

One of my friends apparently has a Facebook friend named Aireal. I'm guessing it's pronounced like Ariel?
