"My brother's name is Angus and it's great - I was able to say it when I was little and since becoming adults we've occasionally called him Gus (but it's not really a habit) - we also have a Scottish background. It's always good to find a strong name that's sweet for a toddler but also respectable in a boardroom - I'm not sure how a Jaxon or Braydon would go in an executive job interview compared to an Angus! Oh, and he also says G is the most important letter of the alphabet because without it he's a real a-hole..." Jan. 31, 2009:

"My name is Angus. I pretty much hated it all through school, but am relatively okay with it now. But whenever someone tells me they are planning to name their baby Angus, I shudder a bit and want to tell them not to. But I don't because it is their choice." Jul. 17, 2009:
