Original Buffy now a mom. Kristy Swanson and Lloyd Eisler greeted new baby boy on Friday.

And the fun celebrity baby naming continues: Magnus Hart Swanson Eisler.

Magnus? What about Merrick, or Pike?
No, wait...Pike isn't a name, it's a fish.
Seriously, congratulations to the happy couple.

I just hope he doesn't get teased with 'Maggie'.
Maybe he'll grow up to be a Robot Fighter.
Magnus, in Latin, means big. It can also be interpreted as great or strong. Hm. I always have slight reservations about names that are qualities, values or states of being.

I worry that the person might feel undue pressure to live up to their name, or will turn out to be a walking irony.

I have met, for example, a Grace that was rude and obnoxious, a Constance that was flighty, and more than one depressive Joy. Growing up in San Francisco has also given me the pleasure of coming into contact with endless people named Rainbow, Aura, Peace, Love and Harmony, to name just a few.

...and we all know a Faith that was that wasn't quite the epitome of trust, confidence and loyalty.
Huh. Now that I think about it, the Joy I know cries at the drop of a hat.

But Magnus? Shudders.
Still nothing can defeat the epitome of heinous, celebrity baby names, Apple.
Congratulations to the family.
My best of wishes to Kristy and her newborne son. Congratulations!
I especially love the part of the story where he left his pregnant wife for Kristy. How romantic. ;)

I hope he doesn't do the same to her when they are expecting their second.
She's scheduled to appear at Chiller Theatre in April.
My best to Kristy and her son. Congrats!

She's married to K-Fed???
There you are. Rogue, we're here.
Where are you? In my head?? Get out!!
"I especially love the part of the story where he left his pregnant wife for Kristy. How romantic. ;)"

I don't follow gossip so maybe that came from a different source, but in this article it did not say he left his pregnant wife for her. It stated that he and his wife were separated before they started dating.

"Eisler and his wife separated in November 2005 and were later divorced. Swanson and Eisler began dating in December 2005 and plan to marry. "

I have no idea what the truth is, nor do I care since it really is none of my business. I just try to be fair to people.
