Linus

This gentle, retro moniker evokes the blanket-toting cutie from "Peanuts" who, despite his youth, was the group's Gospel-quoting philosopher and theologian. History or mythology buffs may know Linus as the music teacher of Hercules and Orpheus; and Linus Pauling was a brilliant and celebrated American chemist. With interesting cultural associations -- and an appealing, sweet sound -- this boy name deserves a close look.
