[quote:Anonymous Coward 17464358:MV8yMDQ1OTM0XzM0NTMwMjg2XzdCNDhFQURE] Dozen here see this..... The English word dozen comes from the old form of the French word douzaine, meaning "a group of twelve" ("Assemblage de choses de même nature au nombre de douze" - (translation: A group of twelve things of the same nature as defined in the eighth edition of the Dictionnaire de l'Académie française). This French word is a derivation from the cardinal number douze ("twelve", from Latin duodĕcim) and the collective suffix -aine (from Latin -ēna), a suffix also used to form other words with similar meanings such as quinzaine (a group of fifteen), vingtaine (a group of twenty), centaine (a group of one hundred), etc. These French words have synonymous cognates in Spanish: docena, quincena, veintena, centena, etc. English dozen, French douzaine, German Dutzend, Dutch dozijn and Spanish docena, are also used as indefinite quantifiers to mean "about twelve" or "many" (as in "a dozen times", "dozens of people"). A confusion may arise with the Anglo-Norman dizeyne (French dixaine or dizaine) a tithing, or group of ten households (See Oxford English Dictionary, meaning #4) - dating from the late Anglo-Saxon system of grouping households into tens and hundreds for the purposes of law, order and mutual surety (see Tithing). In some texts this 'dizeyne' may be rendered as 'dozen' (e.g. Melville-Lee's A History of Police in England, Methuen 1901) [/quote]
Have a baby due on 12-12-12. Hopefully he will come that day by c-section.
Also joked with the doctor would be even awesome if he was born at 12:12am/pm. We joke he is truly our conspiracy baby.
We will call him Lanther as there is no name anywhere we have found with that name.
We are struggling with a Middle name and would love to hear any suggestions.
We want an unusual name that will be his OWN.
A name noone has.
GLP People are very creative with their "words" LOL so we thought it'd be fun to see what you all could suggest.
Thanks to all who take this seriously.
