This is my son, Jesus.

When I was little I used to tell my mom that I was going to name my first born Jesus. Not because I was religious, but because I thought that my child would lead a kick ass life if only their name was Jesus. None of the cop out pronunciation of Jesus either.. It would be pronounced "Jesus", as in "Jesus, son of God." No one would ever ask my kid how to spell their name because everyone would already know. My child would never have problems finding things with its name on it, and I would even be so bold as to say that with a name like Jesus they would be able to buy even sweeter personalized merchandise. It would be awesome.
My mom never supported my name selection, and tried to encourage me to veer away from names of religious figures. It didn't work though... I still intend to name my first born Jesus.. And now I plan to name my second born Pope John Paul II.

Branch out. Name one Jesus, one Buddha, one Muhammed, and one Darwin.

If they're girls, name one Mary after Jesus's mom, one Maya Devi after Buddha's mom, one Amina bint-e-Wahab after Muhammed's mom, and one Lucy.
