This was my Hamilton Conor...



...and this was my Benjamin Ryan....



I didn't have a digital camera when I had Benny, and I wasn't able to snap many good pics of him.

Every time I laid out those CDs...no matter which order...he always gravitated towards Heartbreaker. Even if it was just coincidence, I still found it cute.

When I was a kid, I had a dog named Klinsi (after Klinsmann, German footballer) does that count?

I'm naming my kid Atticus and my dog Finch if that counts for anything.

I met a lady in a GA line who said she named her kid Dave Evans as a first and middle name after Edge. She showed me a pic of him with a little beanie on, it was on a poster she made. She held it up at the concert with "Edge I named my kid after you" written on it and he laughed and pointed at it.

Sula, you're in VA now? How did you get here? Of all things! What part?

I didn't name any of my kids or pets after a band member, but I did name my 2nd daughter after a u2 song. And I'm proud of it! Whenever we hear that song, she knows it's "her" song.

My mum has a dog called Skywalker. Not because she is a Star Wars fan, though. She got the dog from a breeder, who had used him to show and then breed before putting him up for taking when he was about 3 years old. His common name was Sky, as it was short for his full name which is bloody long. Anyway, as he is a male dog, and mum is sick of explaining how he got the name Sky, she tells people his name is Skywalker.

That was really boring, huh

I give my animals and kids generic human names.
