Aircraft manufacturers have a long history of giving their products an exciting name. However, we, as humans, are not good at giving our kids a name because we've been recycling old names. John, Bob and Mike? Boring! More unique names are needed!
Whoo boy, can you imagine letting your favourite aircraft manufacturer name your kid? Well, let's just hope they won't come up with a terrible name like Texan, Intruder, Demon or Duck.
Our son has a fascination with streamlined German motorcycles and cars from before and during the Second World War. My husband and I nicknamed him Komet after Messerschmitt Me-163, the world's first mass produced rocket plane. Aw, look at that! It's adorably tiny!
If you had the chance to name or nickname your kid after a plane, what will it be?
