Yesterday I learned that Matthew McConaughey’s brother, Michael “Rooster” McConaughey, named his second son Miller Lyte after his favorite beer, Miller Lite.
The name Miller Lyte reminded me of Margaux, the name of Lorraine Bracco’s daughter.
Both names were inspired by alcohol. One is more serious (a tribute to a memorable wine experience) while the other is more lighthearted (a jokey reference to a favorite beer).
Which name do you prefer?
P.S. Rooster definitely has a sense of humor when it comes to names. “When the oil business went bust, Rooster lost everything and ended up renaming his [pipe supply] company Chapter 11 Pipe.”
