Be careful when naming your child after Greek Myth

Whoa, somebody in that thread stole one of my icons and is using it as a default!

*dashes off*

Oh, and that name thing is freaky. Maybe they wanted thier kid to be a coin collector...those ferrymen do get a lot of coin.

I'm glad someone pointed out that the Greek "ch" is written "x" and pronounced like "k" (see: tex, meaning "art" and the root of such words as "technique").

Still, naming one's daughter "Xaron"? Not something I'd do.

Just my two copper coins worth. :)

One of my co-workers named her daughter 'Athena'. Being Chinese, she was very interested in the meaning behind the name and purposely chose her 'English' name to mean 'wisdom' as does the Chinese name (which I don't know). I think it's incredibly interesting how Chinese people (and other Asian cultures) are concerned with the underlying meaning of the name more so than how it sounds. :)
