Couple Names Son "2.0"

As I’ve said all along, “The Geek Shall Inherit the Earth.” Here’s more proof. A Michigan couple has just named their new baby as if it were a software upgrade. Read the article.

Jon Blake Cusack, from Holland, Michigan, told local newspapers the US practice of adding “Junior” or “II” after a boy’s name was too common. So, when his son was born last week, he decided on the name Jon Blake Cusack 2.0, as if he were a software upgrade. Mr Cusack admitted that it took months to persuade his wife, Jamie, to accept the idea. His wife Jamie Cusack said she asked several friends if they approved of the name. All the men, she said, felt the name was “cool”. However her women friends were less impressed. “There’s a lot of new features from Version 1.0 [Mr Cusack himself] with additional features from Jamie,” Mr Cusack said.

      Jake Matthew Thompson 2.0 was born on Feb 4, 2004 – at 4:34 AM at St. Joseph Medical center in Tacoma, WA. To proud parents Kyle and Dawn of Olalla Washington.
      The 2.0 in the name is kind of to be used like you would use the name
      the 2nd or Jr. or Sr. Only it shows a future type name for the new century.
      It also can be used to show the first of a family line to be born after the year 2000 and or the only one to be born in a certain state in this case, Washington.
    It also can show that the name is just borrowing a name from one of it’s
    parents and does not mean it is a Jr., or the 2 nd.
    As it in this case. Kyle Matthew Thompson the father lends his middle name
    as Jake’s Bible name. Making him Jake Matthew Thompson 2.0
    Kyle and Dawn and Jake are doing fine. They have been talks with the book
    of world’s records. Also the WEBSTERS dictionary all about the 2.0 being added with new
    meaning. As it use to be 2.0 would be used to show a new version of computer
    programing had just come out. The computer companies would use 2.5 or 3.0 each time a new update was made available and was better then the last.
      Jake could be a famous Baseball player win he grows up. There has already
    been some talk about him acting and modeling.
    Basically the parents had the idea without really ever watching the tv show on
    the UPN network called JAKE 2.0 but heard of it.
    But plan on Seeing more of Jake on the net and on tv, maybe even Jay Leno or Oprah.
    Kyle is a local actor who has done some small tv theater and film work and so he has connected with some famous talk shows.
    Dawn is one of the TOP house Keepers at a nursing home.
    There are only 3 known children in the world using the 2.0 name.
    The Family has been getting news calls and interviews about it if you would like
    to email them or call their business line feel free at the following contacts.
    They would love to hear from you or any news papers or anyone.
    For links about JAKE online just email Kyle and Dawn and they will
    be happy to help you out.
