As in the phrase, "Dum spiro, spero" ("As long as I breathe, I hope")? I actually love it. And as time goes on, the name will be less associated by Spiro Agnew (I don't think most people a Spiro born today is going to interact with would remember/know about him anyway), and this awesome name will be more usable!
