Baby named like a software upgrade

Jon Blake Cusack 2.0 was born on January 27, 2004, to Jamie and Jon Blake Cusack of Michigan.

It took Jon “months” to persuade his wife to use “2.0” instead of a traditional suffix, like “II” or “Jr.”

Mr. Cusack told the Holland Sentinel newspaper he got the idea from a film called The Legend of 1900, in which an abandoned baby is given the name 1900 to celebrate the year of its birth.

“I thought that if they can do it, why can’t we?” he told the paper.

Jon also noted that, if his son one day has a child, “he could name it 3.0.”
