Judge Alito, name my baby!
no, i am NOT preggers. however, with the Samuel Alito confirmation hearings in full swing, there's been a lot of spiffy Latin legal terminology flooding the airwaves, and with it, great baby names! i'm thinking that if i ever have a daughter, i should name her StaRae D'Sysis (hip-hop artist). or Starry Dysysyss (can i buy a vowel?). or Starri Dee Sisiss (cheerleader). in any case, stare decisis literally means "to stand by things decided," and if all that the fabulous Mommybloggers say is true, having and raising a kid certainly fits that definition, don't you think?

Haaaa! Brilliant. I'm in favor of the hip-hop version.

Well, my sister IS preggers, and is having trouble naming her child/fetus/whatever. Since she took Latin in college (you know, when you're a nuclear physicist, elective Latin seems positively easy and FUN), I'll suggest that she consider habeas corpus (Haby for short) or stare decisis!
