“In Greek culture, traditionally the first-born son would be named after my father, a first-born daughter would be named after my mother, while the second-born would be named after my wife’s parents. That’s kind of the code we have. It matters to [my father], and it matters to me. I like Michael too, but it’s so common. This name has character and history.” Nicholas Soukeras is willing to make some concessions. He says if the couple goes with Spyridon as a first name, the middle name can be Michael, and that his wife can have naming rights for all future children. However, to name the baby Spyridon when he will be born, after a few months, Nicholas has to obtain 100,000 voters for his online petition, according to the agreement with his wife.
