A bouncing baby Yahoo

Finally this week we salute Nonu and Cornelia Dragoman, the Romanian couple who met online, conducted a virtual relationship for three months, and then got together and produced a lovely bouncing baby.
Sadly for the child, he’s going to be mocked for the rest of his life, now that his proud parents have named him Lucian Yahoo Dragoman, after the online service they were using. Cornelia picked ‘one name after my father and the other from the computer. These were the two elements which guided my life,’ she told the papers. We’ll be scanning the register of births for little MSNs and AOLs.
