Naming Conventions

This is stolen from my father's page:

http://www.kerryr.net/pioneers/shannon.htm
yes shannon is named after claude shannon
At that time I had two all-time party animals math science heros
1./Richard Feynman
2./Claude Shannon

I could not name him Richard as that IS MY NAME AND I'D NEVER WISH A JR. ON A CHILD so all i had to do was convince his mum – her list included Kiefer, Freedom, Garcia, Lancer, Basil, Llewellyn, Sebastien, Starbuck, Wesley, Perry, Milo, Mordecai, Ephram, Simon, Jules, Jason, November – well kv was a big fan of Johnny Cash and I sold it as like

a boy called sue
which of course it is

once shannon was programming
i think only two other names were
in 20/20 hindsight – runners up

#2 – wesley
#3 – november

Edit: My mother disputes most of the above story. I wish they'd keep me out of their drama.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
