Now we all know Johhny T called his boy Jet, and some other pratt I can't recall called his son Pilot Inspector, but what other aviation baby names can you dream up ? ( sorry to add ' aviation ' to a post here ! )

One of my colleagues called his new son, Jackson Michael. We were all looking forward to see if when he had a daughter, if he called her something like, Spears Brittney.

When Montreal built its shiny new airport, the origin of its name, supposedly, was that the farmer who previously owned the land had two daughters called Miriam and Isabel. (Mirabel - geddit?)

Which prompted a pal of mine to conjecture that that New York farmer must have done pretty well, the one who had the sons called Ken and Neddy.

..and some other pratt can't recall called his son Pilot Inspector....
He should have a called him Whitney. A winning combination if I ever heard one. ;)

I had a dog called Flaps

I didn't know you were that way inclined, FB, but I think refering to the none-too-shabby Mme Flaps as a 'Dog' is quite harsh....

ok, ok - sorry, but i couldn't resist...

Then there was the Irish pilot Capt O'Tube who named his firstborn 'Pete'...

I never did like flying an aircraft with an engine named for a woman....prefer manly names like Wright and Pratt and Whitney....Leonides...women are so prone to let you down at the worst of times.

No,I don't think so. My female friends have been fairly reliable for the last ten years..

I believe that Mr Lear wanted to call his daughter Shanda, until Mrs Lear vetoed the idea.
