This is an encore blog. I posted it originally on my Myspace blog a couple of months ago. It turned out to be my most popular to date. 6 comments! All the nerds came out of the woodwork to post their opinion about our little Logan. So I thought that my Blogspot readers might want to check it out also.

I think most of you who know me (and some of you who don't) have figured out why I chose the name Logan for my precious little sweetie. But for those not in the know, here is a breakdown of they name Logan:

First of all you gotta know that Terry and I are huge nerds. Well... I wasn't a nerd until I started hanging out with Terry and company. Don't try to tell me any different. I'm no listening la la la la la la la

Anyway, as most of our friends picked up on right away, Logan is the name of Wolverine (X-Men).Yes, my baby is named after a comic book hero. How nerdy is that? However, in my defence, what better comic book hero to be named after? Wolverine is BADASS!

This is basically how Terry convinced me to choose Logan:
You see... Wolverine is from Alberta (so is Logan's mommy) :D
And I wouldn't really want my kid named Peter Parker or Lex Luther now do I?
As one friend so aptly pointed out, Logan is the least nerdy "nerd" name we could come up with. And at least we didn't call him "Wolverine."

I came up with a crazy idea a couple of years ago that I'm going to follow through on. I kept telling people that if i ever had a kid, I would tattoo his/her name on the skin over my ovary. That is where the kid came from after all :D
Logan just happens to lend itself to that very thing. There are lots of ways to incorporate the Wolverine theme into a tattoo. In fact, a friend from Chronix Radio created one for me.

Image was removed due to large amount of traffic. I don't want too many people getting my tattoo design before me!


If the Wolverine angle isn't your cup of tea, Logan is also the name of an Avenue in Winnipeg (Winnipeg being where Logan and Logan's Daddy were born).

Here is the official definition of Logan if that's more to your liking:
- a mountain peak in the St. Elias Range in the southwestern Yukon Territory in Canada (19,850 feet high)
- Logan is a low cost automobile produced by Renault and Dacia. It is based on the Renault-Nissan small car platform also used by the Nissan Micra and the 3rd generation Renault Clio. It was launched in 2004 as the Dacia Logan and will also be sold as a Renault Logan in Russia and other markets.The car replaces many older cars in production, including Iran's Hillman Hunter-based Paykan and the Romanian Renault 12-based Dacia range.
- Logan is a provincial electoral division in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It was created by redistribution in 1956, and existed until 1989.

Whatever you do, just don't tell me that we named our kid after Rory's boyfriend on the Gilmore Girls . He doens't do justice to such a heroic name!

That tattoo is awesome. I was actually searching the Internet for a good Wolverine-inspired tattoo and came across yours. I just had a son in December, whom we named Logan. My wife suggested the name, and I too liked it because of the whole Wolverine angle. This is just what I was looking for.
