I’m delighted to report that Amy and John welcomed their first child into the world on Friday; a healthy baby boy named Luca.
Vital statistics: 3.78kg and 51cm long at birth.
The name was a mystery to us all for a long time and subject of much discussion. We all thought about using the surname of a famous finite geometer to nudge him in the right direction, but for some reason Amy vetoed Payne, Thas AND Tits. Fussy, if you ask me. I looked up the name Luca on some “baby-name” website to see if it had some deep meaning, but apparently it just means “Man from Lucania”. (Actually, this seems frankly implausible to me because a name constructed on those lines would be essentially useless throughout Lucania, but then I’m no expert on baby names.)
Anyway, congratulations to both Amy and John, and welcome Luca!
