Yes, I'll name my child parent. This will reverse the tree, vertically.

And if they settle on they/them pronouns, you could have an inverted non-binary tree.

Why no Ada or Janet? Or Haskell or Idris?

[-] [email protected] 9 points 2 months ago

Ada is in fact named after a person, thus completing the circle.

A friend of mine named his dog Byte. The dog is very playful, and has the habit of running in the direction of other people he meets.

When the dog does that my friend tries to call him back shouting: "BYTE!! BYTE!!". People get really scared when this happens 😂

Okay, not so funny if you are the one being approached by the dog.

That's probably a little unethical but the mental image is absolutely hilarious.
