The Emperor.

We talked a little bit ago about the little kid by the name of Adolf Hitler. Did you know Emperor has a funny name, too? It really is an emperor's name, and probably not one most Christians would name their son, but I do stuff like that just to irk other people and make spelling difficult for the kid. Once, a lady accosted me RIGHT IN FRONT of Emperor for "saddling him with such an awful name." Yep, this happened at church, too. The Spirit of Christ was just movin' big-time in my response, too. Because I'm a hypocrite and am only Jesus-like when it's convenient and I'm unoffended. :]

  2. :] emailed it to you. Most people can figure it out, though, when you tell them he's mentioned in the Bible.

  3. I am trying to rack my brain...hmmm. I know you said Bible but, when I think a bad Emperor to name your kids, I think Star Wars and Emperor Palaptine.

    OK, not really.

  6. I'm glad you said it's a name in the Bible, because I was getting stuck on Nero... of course, I could have gone with Palpatine too [smile]

  7. Well, I was going to say as long as it's not Nero we're all good but I'm too late for that line & if it's the Emperor I think it is there's a very famous painter who goes by that tag too. :)

  9. Hmm, I am very curious too!

    I guess it is safer to make a comment like that to the parent of an emperor than, say, to the parent of Adolf Hitler :(.

    Augustus? Otho? Constantine?

  10. It's that guy that wanted the whole world taxed. In the book of Luke, which explains why Luke got this one right away. :]

  11. If you pair up my Caesar with your son, they could call a census!

  12. Yep, they would be the census twins!

    Apparently having a name that long is mean to do to the child. I think there is an all kids should be named Jeff, Dylan or Tyler law written informally somewhere. :]

  13. One of my girls has a 4 syllable classical name & no~one thinks I was mean, not even the kid herself. She actually really likes her name.

  14. I totally laughed out loud at this! My Sass has a name that most people equate with vampires. And the people who recognize is always ask, "Is she named after HER?" LOL!

    (She's not; it's a family name.)
