That reminds me. If I had a son I wouldn't mind naming him ''Johannes Vermeer'' a Dutch painter.

Johannes_Vermeer Johannes_Vermeer

Or maybe I'll just go with ''Vermeer''.

I named one after Rafael the painter and Alexander the Great.

When he was young he thought it was cool to be named after a Ninja turtle. I did not disabuse him of that notion.

One night in a bar I told my best friend that if I've won the lottery and gave him $1,000,000 dollars, would I had the exclusive rights to name his first born, and he said yes, that for a cool $1,000,000 cash I could name him "Dante Pantaleón" or "Nebuchadnezzar", but I never won the lottery and my friend now lives in Seattle so little Pantaleón's actual name is "Allan".

But if I had children, and this is not likely since my wife and I don't want to have children I would name him-her "Jacques-Yves", in honor of my childhood hero, thank god we don't have children.

I guess if I named my child after my favorite artist it wouldn't be so bad, John William.

Oh, I got slightly excited there: I saw the word 'Beatrice' and before even reading the rest, my mind had jumped right to Portinari - that is, Dante's Beatrice. Mind you, they still shared the same basic portrait of being utterly beautiful, and Italian at that!

Not personally, but I imagine if it had or would be so, the name needs to sound adequately normal, too. But I'd definitely had steered away from naming any child Maurice, after Maurice Papon, although I wouldn't mind Maximilien, after Robespierre. It's a thin line. But I appreciate the modern quality of Max, especially in French.

I know a couple of Constantines. It sounds ludicrous to me, but it seems to be quite normal in Eastern Europe.
