Baby names for geologists

So... After the great announcement of expecting a baby the couple has to choose christian (given) names for the offspring... I think women like to collect names for boys and girls and to give the list to the man to decide - at least this is how we've proceeded with Baby Boo... I am not sure how much you will like this cartoon, in fact it's been rather a kind of linguistic game and mockery for me... Many parents think that the best thing to do with their child to make him unique is to give him an extraordinary given name referring to special events, the place of conception, the favourite actor or rock band or anything... So I put these phenomena into the scientific context and was thinking about different scientific terms from different areas (geology, informatics, physics, chemistry, informatics, biology...) as possible girl and boy names... If the text is not easy to read please make a comment and I will change the font type. And of course I'll be back with similar comic strips soon...
