My friends who hold the annual backyard Fourth of July/anniversary party are now grandparents, and the baby, now ten months old, was there with parents in hand. He waved a little paper US flag around a lot. His name is Miles, and here are some of the questions I didn't ask:
1) Is that a Bujold reference?
2) It's not a Sondheim reference, is it?
3) If the baby keeps you up all night, do you sing "Miles to go before I sleep"?
4) If you move to Canada, would you have to change his name to Kilometers?
