I love Buffy. All seven seasons and the eighth season that was done in graphic novel form. Actually, I just love all things Joss Whedon: Buffy, Firefly, Angel, Dollhouse (mostly). They are all so wonderful! The perfect blend of funny, horror, fantasy, sci-fi, intrigue, romance, intelligence, violence, and punning. I honestly can't believe I haven't written about this before.
Due to my great love (and slightly unnatural obsession) I would love to name my little baby Buffy if it is a girl. I mean, what a great name?!?!? It is a nod back to the 40s and 50s, it is short, sweet, unique with a bit of tough built right in. However, Mr. Neruda is completely against it. He won't even discuss it. I am staggered. First, how rude. Second, I'm doing all the hard work of growing this parasite so I should totally get double say in the name.
Also, for a boy I would love the name Fox after Fox Mulder in the X Files. Mr. Neruda has nixed that one as well. Stupid him. He doesn't know good characters and good names if they punched him in the face (which both would be happy to do!).
So, until I can win him over I will be calling the fetus Buffy or Fox once we know the sex. Hopefully they will grow on him by the time its born and he will crumble to my will. Otherwise, I will concede the name Joss.
