Geekout book of the week

Among the suggestions and sources: Cletus (from the movie Rollerball), Yllana (Queen of Outer Space), Teyla (Stargate Atlantis), Hideto (Godzilla, King of the Monsters), and Cayman (Battle Beyond the Stars). Schnakenberg also suggests the name Jor-El (from Action Comics #1) but, strangely, not that of Jor-El's more famous son, Kal-El, who is better known as Superman. Yeah, pretty geeky that I know that bit of trivia, but not as geeky as Nicolas Cage, who actually HAS a son named Jor-El.

Huh, makes me really glad my baby-naming days are behind me. I am SO thankful my sci-fi loving husband didn't have this book in hand when we were deciding on names!
