I am officially putting in my bid for my new nephew's name: Severus.
Severus Brandon Cohen
I know it doesn't follow the one syllable rule that little Sev's parents have been upholding, but i think it is a fine name and should be seriously considered.
Seriously. No, not Sirius, Severus. (okay, i know that was lame, but i just couldn't help it.)
I know i have mentioned this name before, perhaps in a "joking" manner, but now i am in earnest. The more i thought about it, the more it seemed appropriate.
Name your kid Severus.
