I just had the Best. Idea. Ever.

Ladies- if you are pregnant, and know your baby is a boy ... consider naming your child "Gotham." That way, when your baby starts crying in the middle of the night, all you have to do is turn to your husband and whisper, "Gotham needs you." And it won't matter if it's the first time or the fiftieth time he's hearing it, he will get up and take care of business. And you can roll over and get your well-deserved sleep.

There you go, ladies. You're welcome.

I think she's on to something! Parenting seems to work okay for BatDad (though perhaps not the grandparents, because, you know, Batman is an orphan and all that).

That's brilliant!

It wouldn't have worked for my wife. I suggested naming a son Bruce Wayne, but my wife refused. So I doubt that she would have gone for Gotham either.
