Baby Name Wizard

After the news yesterday of a new baby on the way, i decided to check out some names. I really love the BabyName Wizard. This is a tool that allows you to type in a name and see how popular it is and has been over the last hundred years or so. I tried "Xavier" - my sons name. Around 1000 babies in every million are called Xavier.

Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

"El Cinco de Mayo ("The Fifth of May" in Spanish) is a national celebration in Mexico. It commemorates the victory of Mexican forces led by General Ignacio Zaragoza over the French expeditionary forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5,1862."


Interestingly, the one of the places the French were defeated was in Loreto, my wife's name.

btw, a zillion points for anyone who correctly guesses the first letter in this blogger verification (tip - it wasn't a "b").

Please, don't encourage them, go here.
