Most Interesting Fact About McCain’s VP Pick…

…according to me, anyway.

She has a son named “Trig”.

That’s not a misprint.  Her children’s names are listed in several articles such as this one.  I would love to know the story behind the choosing of that name.  (Her father was a schoolteacher.  Does anyone know if he taught math?)

For the record, my youngest daughter is named Sophie after Sophie Germain, a female mathematician who overcame enormous odds to pursue her passion.  But naming a child “Trig”?  That is bold.
