Not On Our Name List

Kevin 2.0 is not on our baby name list.

BBC – A proud US father and self-confessed engineering “geek” has named his son after a computer software term. Jon Blake Cusack, from Holland, Michigan, told local newspapers the US practice of adding “Junior” or “II” after a boy’s name was too common. So, when his son was born last week, he decided on the name Jon Blake Cusack 2.0, as if he were a software upgrade.

Mr Cusack admitted that it took months to persuade his wife, Jamie, to accept the idea. Mrs Cusack said she asked several friends if they approved of the name. All the men, she said, felt the name was “cool”. However her women friends were less impressed. “I think the women will end up liking it,” she said.

The father could have save the child time by have “DORK” tattooed on its forehead.
