Entertaining and artful are two words that definitely apply to some of the unusual entries we're seeing on birth certificates these days. WHAT'S IN A NAME is our Cover Story, reported by Susan Spencer (Originally broadcast on September 24, 2017):
New York businessman Michael Ayer never had trouble making decisions. But picking a name for his only son was a tough one.
"Traditional WASP-y names – you know, George and Beatrice – that's what we have in our family," he said. "My grandfather on my mother's side was John Milton Michael."
Bored with his conventional family tree, he went out on a limb … way out.
Ready for it? The Ayers named their son Billion (as in Billion Ayer).
"We came up with Billion because all the others – Bad Ayer, Hot Ayer, Million Ayer, Gazillion Ayer – at least you could always run with Bill."
yep. and some parent(s) are just stupid.
