Liberty... or Tyranny?

First a little background -


So when I get a new package of pens, I have to try them all out. I write the alphabet (in cursive, in print, in caps, in lower case...), then I write some names to see how the pen flows (OCD, I know).

Anyway, I was trying out a new pen, fiddling with names I might like for any future kids. I really love the name "Liberty" so I was writing it different ways. It's Kristina's middle name, but I really wouldn't mind stealing it. So I looked over at Tony and said, "What do you think of the name Liberty?" His response? Something to the effect of -

"At this rate, you'd better name her Tyranny"

I cracked up.

I asked him what prompted that, and he said he'd been listening to a debate on the radio about liberty and tyranny. I guess we'll just have wait and see if she winds up as Liberty or Tyranny. Maybe we'll hedge our bets and name her Liberty Tyranny.

Perhaps Boudica (the warrior queen) and Liberty? Or, maybe Liberte' in the spirit of revolution?
