    I love names. One of my favorites that is a bit unusual is Theophilus.

    Hearing people naming their babies after Game of Thrones characters made me very angry.

    Some names are unisex, for example Hilary.

    I used to work with a lot of immigrants, including Africans... I think that continent has some of the most interesting first names I've ever seen, and some are tongue twisters...

    Yes. in the Iliad, there is a term: "διΐ φίλος," (pronounced di-i philos ) which is "dear to Zeus" (God) and later (i.e. koine), it became, "θεόφιλος" (Theophilus)

    If I have a son, I will name him Terry Aki. If I have a daughter, I will name her Brock Ali.

    Then I will turn myself in to CPS over those names.

    "Paige" for a girl.
    Also, there's an actor whose first name is my surname. That's weird.

    In the Bible's New Testament, it means "God-loving."

    It was the name of a man that Dr. Luke dedicated his two books (Luke and its sequel, Acts of the Apostles) to.

    This one.

    I don't know what's funnier - the name itself or the people's reaction to it.

    I used to represent many people from Viet Nam as clients of my law firm. They were all named Nguyen which is pronounced like "when". We had to track them and maintain client files by social security numbers because they all had the same name.
