Its amazing what some people will do for a little attention...
And there are so many jokes here, I can't even begin.....its great late night tv fodder, this
Don't they realize the kid WILL get beat up in school? Severely?
i can see this kid growing up to hate his father
When does he get his first service pack?
Really. Some parents deserve a kicking....
i guess when they disciplin him it wont be a spanking rather a security patch
I guess that's better than calling him 'Offspring 2004' He'd probably wind up crashing a bunch of cars then.
Or calling him 'Prince Michael the Second'.
I don't think it's a bad idea, I like it actually. I can see it catching on too.
I guess it's no worse than naming your kid Dweezil or Moon-Unit.
I agree. It seems like a publicity stunt to me.
'Version 2.0, Go To your Room!
But I don't want to Version 1.0!
Thats it, your getting a time OUT!'
I've never understood why people name their children after their name? There are so many other names to choose from?!
2.0?! Still, it could have been worse... (trying to think of that scenario )
I think a lot of people are missing the point (rtfa). His name isn't 2.0. His name followed by 2.0 instead of Jr. He will be called by his first name, like any other kid. Other kids won't know he's 2.0 instead of Jr unless he tells them. He's uniquely named, which is more than most of us can say.
I think this is a pretty slick idea.
It's not THAT bad. 2.0 instead of II or Junior. So he'll grow up with people thinking he's a nerd instead of a prick or a pansy. Like someone else said, this COULD catch on. It's just a different way of numbering. It's not that ridiculous. The word 'version' is not actually in his name, after all.
Much, much better, all in all, than the 'Abcde' girl.
Heh, and I bet a majority of the above posters trash the manual without reading it.
I also think it is pretty cool, I agree that Jr. and II is overdone. Now if I was a millionaire and my name was something to be proud of, I might give it to my kid, but really, how disappointing to be named after someone who isn't important to everybody else but you.
<Disclaimer>Sorry I don't mean to aggrivate or annoy any 1sts, 2nds, 3rds, etc.
alset: exactly. Back home, there are two other guys my age named "Tom", and one of them is a major *******!
Beats naming eight of your kids George Foreman. Now there's ego.
I do think it's rather silly, though--I don't think I'd much like to be named after anybody, but if I were, I wouldn't want to be version 2.0. Does that mean I'm an upgrade over my dad?
Ok, if my dad were annoying enough to name me [something], 2.0, I would hope I'd be an improved version of him, but I think most of us who're proud of our fathers would rather think of themselves as merely different, not "better".
he he. that is kind of funny.
i love the way they sent out emails to family & friends.
this really could catch on... i bet soon some others like Trekkies will start names like " Jean Luke SD 5928.5" or some other crazy numbering convention.
It's not quite as bad as I thought. I thank that it is a very unique way to name a junior. I'm a junior, never got any kidding related to being a junior.
Yes, It's not all that bad
I first thought it was odd, but it's growing on me. Even my mother likes it. I wonder if he gets to be 2.1 after his graduation?
It's not that bad. It's not like he named him Beta 1 or even worse Alpha .001.
will there be a version 3? and what about 2.1, 2.2, will they all be skipped?
i read about this a few days ago. kinda funny, sad, confusing, and amusing all at the same time. that's why im not gonna name my kid Ryan Version 2.0
Heh, he becomes 2.1 on his first birthday and continues on
If the son follows the father, then his son the grandson would be Version 3.0!
This just may be a new trend.
He who has health has hope, and he who has hope has everything
