    My wife and I are celebrating the birth of our first child. We were working on names and wanted to name him after someone inspirational. My wife and I really like the name Elon, so the decision was made. On 6 Nov. 2012 Elon Palmer was introduced to the world. We are quite sure that in 20-30 years when the name Elon is mentioned nobody will be thinking of the guy who builds electric cars, solar power or rocket ships; unless of course our Elon decides to take over for Mr. Musk.

    Congratulations!!

    If Aptera had hit it big then you would have had Steve or Chris to go with. Good names but not as unique as Elon.

    Congratulations again, Michael.

    Thanks for all the well wishes everyone.

    And as for Aptera, I have a lot of respect for both Steve and Chris, and they too, from what little I know about them, seem to be great role models as well as Elon, but their names are just not inspiring.
