Oliver Hans vs. Oliver Alan vs. Oliver Mathison

Hi! We have decided on a first name for our son, and we’re trying to decide on a middle name. We like the idea of having a name that means something to us ("Hans" is meaningful for multiple reasons, including that it’s a common name in Iceland, where we honeymooned; "Alan" and "Mathison" are the first and middle names of Alan Mathison Turing, a computer scientist whom Jonathan admires). However, we’re open to suggestions. By the way, we pronounce "Hans" as "Hahnz." Thanks for your help! - Michelle and Jonathan

Genie's Mailbag

Carina in Canada
Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
