For the biblical scholar. Derived from Jude, the half-brother of Jesus—not Judas, the betrayal guy. May your child never betray Jesus.
For the belt lover. May your child never pair a brown belt with black shoes.
For the Dane Cook lover. May your child practice unabashed douchebaggery.
For the theologist. May your child's god complex reach Trumpian levels.
For the steadfast fan of JC Chasez, the beating heart (and sexiest member) of NSYNC. May your child never be a Chris Kirkpatrick.
For the nature lover, because "Appalachian Table-Mountain Pine" doesn't have that ring. May your child marry a woman named "Maple."
Derived from "comb," for the father who styled the top half of his hair into a man bun before arriving 11 minutes late to a blind coffee date with his child's future mother. May your child go prematurely bald.
For anyone who ever wondered how Scooby-Doo would greet Lex Luther if they were to meet—and what a killer episode of '00s favorite Smallville that would be. May your child appreciate the classics.
For the parents who wanted a daughter named Corinne. May your child only disappoint you that once.
For the guy who thinks space adventures peaked during the 1967-1968 season of the original Star Trek series. May your child think Han shot second.
