Homer is a name that has traveled from the ancient Greek scribe of the great classical epics to Bart Simpson's doltish dad -- and has also become the surprise hot celebrity pick of such parents as Richard Gere (his father's name), Bill Murray, and Anne Heche. Simpsons creator Matt Groening has both a father and a son named Homer.
Because of the epic scope of The Odyssey and The Iliad, the term 'homeric' implies work on an enormous scale, while 'homeric laughter' references the unrestrained laughter of the Greek gods.
With its quirky resume, Homer could make an interesting choice.
