Apparently, the middle name of my niece's new baby is Danger.

You must remember this: a ghoti is still a fish...

^^HAHA!  That's awesome.  It's her middle name, so no one ever needs to know unless she chooses to tell them.  And she can say "Danger is my middle name."

It's increasingly common. I've seen it in birth announcements enough that I just sigh mentally and say "again?" to myself when I see it.

What you said.  Not cute nor remotely original.  Just another one.

I wrapped something for a little Aristote (Aristotle in english) today. I find it cute actually, but it's so much conoted that I wouldn't think to name a kid that.

I don't always glance at the label, a few weeks ago I had an Alpha (didn't ask if he was the first child and what the second one was named :) - even more because Beta (bÍta) translate to dummy in french....)

I understand that Beta is a common girls name in Farsi speaking regions.  We have a friend who is a software developer and his partner is called Beta.  Many dreadful puns are made about their relationship

An interesting one in the birth announcements today:

Rhamiya Money (girl).

Money might be a family name though.  The paper didn't say.

I have a new student whose given name is Precious.

I've not met her parents, but I keep imagining Gollum...

I knew a Treasure also.  It sounds better in German: Schatzi.
