When trying to come up with baby names, you tend to “try out” all the names you stumble across in the press, on TV, or wherever.
Recently, I read about someone named Vera. I like old-fashioned-yet-strong names, so latched onto “Vera” and rolled it around in my mind for a bit.**
Of course, one of the things that you do is try out a name with your own last name…. In our case:
Oops. Never mind.
(Unless everyone with that name gets a cut of the company profits?!??)
** Also, for Firefly fans, “Vera” has a rather hilarious special meaning. Don’t know whether this would have made Mr. T more or less likely to jump at the name!
[Later edit: Of course, this is exactly why we decided to use the name Vera on the blog. Google anonymity!]
