Unfortunately I still can’t convince my wife to name our children after long dead kings of biblical era empires. I tried to convince her to name our first child “Nebuchadnezzar, King of the Fertile Crescent” [wikipedia.org] but she didn’t like it. A good thing in the end I guess as it turned out the baby was a girl, and Nebuchadnezzar, King of the Fertile Crescent is a bit odd for a girl. For our second child I was hoping for a less well-known dead king — one “Suppiluliuma, Lord of Anatolia” [wikipedia.org] for a boy or “Gassulawiya, Tawananna of the Hittites” [wikipedia.org]” for a girl. For some reason my wife is less than inclined to let me name the kids.
