DT Namewatch #17: Biblical Edition

Any names you've heard lately make you want to shout, "hosanna"? Proclaim them here, at names [at] daddytypes [dot] com.

  • Colt [via Wikipedia Brown and The Case of The Captured Koala]
  • A C, grandfather, "first name 'A', middle name 'C'. No period after the letter, because it's not an initial -- it's his name" [via robert]
  • M, same deal. My dad's middle name.
  • Boaz, Ruth's husband, "The 21st century Boaz will be "Bo" for short." [via tropha]
  • Gunner [sp?], one of only nine words in this redneck video that can be printed in the New York Times. (The other eight are, "You need to put your leg brace on.") [via deadspin]
  • Fleetwood Vibe, new Pynchon character [via nyt]
  • Tyrone Slothrop, an old Pynchon character from Gravity's Rainbow [wikipedia]

    The "Gunner" video was stunning. Amusing as it was, I don't think I have felt so sad for a kid in a long time. Genuinely painful to watch. It just made me want to hug my son.

    [it's amazing/depressing, he's really trying to scream just like his old man. -ed.]
