Chinese Baby Named After Saddam and SARS

A baby boy born in Wuhan, China, on 20 March 2003 was named Saddam Deng Sars. He was born on the day the Iraq war broke out, hence Saddam, and around the time SARS was spreading across China. Deng is the family name.

At the time of the news reports, the parents were considering using an alternative name for the official records because weren’t sure whether the Chinese government would accept the name Saddam Deng Sars. (I haven’t seen any updates to this story, so I’m not sure what the outcome was.)

And now your mission, should you decide to accept it: look up what was going on in the world around the time you were born. Re-name yourself according to one of the headlines and leave a comment with your new name. (The year-by-year Wikipedia pages should be helpful. Here’s 1950, for example.)
