    That one of Lucinda's babies is gorgeous. Todd's boy looks just like him.

    A beautiful and very unusual name. I wonder if Todd is a motorsport fan? Ayrton is not a common first name in the Western world.

    Yes, Eldredge confirmed on Twitter that his son is named after the Brazilian F1 racing driver, Ayrton Senna:
    "amazing driver & proud to name my son after such an amazing man. Maybe he'll grow up to race one day."

    I was wondering about the middle name. Very Buddhist...

    I suspected as much. There have been a few more Ayrtons getting around lately with the release of "Senna" and his nephew, Bruno, doing quite well in F1.

    I doubt this Brazilian pronunciation will survive in Florida

    Luckily (or unluckily) in almost every interview Bruno does someone asks him about his uncle. The way Bruno says it is "Eye-ton" with a very short "o" sound. Since is a) Brazilian and b) related I'll go with how he says it! Most Westerners pronounce it Air-tn, I've found. Murray Walker of the BBC once switched to saying it properly and got heaps of angry letters from fans telling him to stop pronouncing Senna's name like a pompous idiot!

    (I've also heard it said Eye-air-ton, which seems to be some kind of bastardised inbetween version used by US commentators.)

    ^ He used to. I don't think he has it anymore (someone asked him about it on his Facebook wall), but he does have a Corvette (and loves auto racing as a sport), in addition to golf.

    Congrats to Todd, his fiancee and his family! Such a very handsome little boy! Love his inspired name. First I've learned about Ayrton Senna (as I am not that in to racing car scene), but wow -- Todd has named his son after a very cool, brave man! Senna is a national hero in Brazil and an international hero in the world of F1 racing. Haven't seen the documentary on Senna's life and career but it must be a wonderful tribute.

    So it seems that Todd isn't interested in his son growing up to be a figure skater as he surely understands first hand what an unforgiving and difficult pursuit that can be. Race car driving of course has its own set of dangers and challenges, but at least judges aren't always involved in deciding whether you crossed the finish line first.

    I think golf might be a safer pursuit, but all good luck to Ayrton Zen Eldredge in whatever he does. Enjoy every moment with your son, Todd!
