Default So here's my announcement

I'm going to have a baby!

Quark: I thought your females carried your young.

Thanks, Quark. Yes, my wife. My wife is having the baby.

Worf: NOW?

No, about seven months. (mid-January)

Worf: Seven months, you say? Unfortunately, I will be away from the station at that time. ... Far away. Visiting my parents. ... On Earth.

Um, Worf? I'm on Earth.

Worf: Yes. Well, ... excuse me. (bolts)

Anyway, so there's my exciting announcement. Bets may be placed on gender, name, and whether or not it will have forehead ridges.

hmm... My money's on Female + Ridges. No bet on the name.

Male, James T. Luke Kal-el Indiana Dean, and the ridges depend on how close the nearest toxic waste dump is.

Yeah, um, didn't even know you were married...

Sheesh, we are getting so OLD!

The middle name should be Tiberius if it's a boy.

^Really and truly, don't follow Nate's advice. Tiberius was... not a nice fellow.

Congratulations!

I wager on the name Joseph Peter Paul Andrew James John Thomas James Philip Bartholomew Matthew Simon Jude Linus Cletus Clement Sixtus Cornelius Cyprian Lawrence Chryosgonus John Paul Cosmas Damian Dean if it's a boy.

If a girl, I'm guessing Tracy.

David Evan Roger Ernest Keith Dean if it's a boy, and B...screw it, I'm not spelling out "Blueberry" in girls names.

It's worse than you think - Derek's been married for nearly five and a half years. (So have I, for that matter.)

If anyone wants to see it, here's the ultrasound. I think it's too early to distinguish forehead ridges, but the kid definitely looks alien at this point.

This is joyous news. I couldn't be happier for the two of you. You'll be wonderful parents.

Barkeep, a round for the whole house on me!

I like the way the name John and James are in there twice (though I get why there are two Johns). And thanks for leaving out Judas.

Though honestly I'm kinda thinking no on the James name. Either I'll be naming him after James Dean or Jimmy Dean (and Jimmy could be either the singer or the brand name).

How about a middle name of Endicott in honor of Barclay?

I think Judas may be omitted from the text, but also Thaddeus?

Congratulations, you two.

Judas isn't in the text, no - and the name Thaddeus is also generally swapped out for Jude - owing to the old tradition that they were the same person, I'd assume.

The second James might be to account for either James the Less or the Son of Alphaeus, depending.

Of course, instead of Bartholemew you could use Nathaniel. John 1:47. They're generally considered the same guy.

Sapristi sapristi! That's fantastic news!

The real question is, what will be the baby's account name be here on the board? It's never to early to start them off!

Not sure whether I said anything on LJ or not, so I'll say Congratulations! here and now.

Congratulations, you three! (Don't want to leave the baby out of the congratulations.)

As for the name, I'll speculate that it will not be Eustace Clarence Dean. Just a hunch.

Might as well clean out the bottom of that barrel. Abby C. Dean. Does everyone feel better now?

Wondergirl McAwesome III!

You'll want a different name if it turns out to be a girl, of course.
