Engineering geek names son version 2.0
HOLLAND, Michigan (AP) -- Tacking Jr. or II onto a boy's name is too common, a new father decided, so the self-described engineering geek took a software approach to naming his newborn son.

Jon Blake Cusack talked his wife, Jamie, into naming their son Jon Blake Cusack 2.0.

Version 2.0 was born Tuesday at Holland Community Hospital, and the proud parents took him home Friday.

"I wanted to find something different to name him besides Jon Blake," Cusack, who is self-employed with Westshore Design and Cusack Music, told The Holland Sentinel.

Hmmm... maybe I should name my next son with a 2.0...?

Woah, weird. I have some odd desire to name my children with geeky acronyms in mind. Like...

Bwahaha. I think having fun with your children's names is fine, as long as it is not easily noticeable.
