Naming my daughter Virgin. Actually Virgin-Pacific to also include her Asian heritage.

Perhaps, but only if my surname was “Dawn”.

I mean, if I did, it wouldn't be for travel-related reasons.

I don't imagine Delta Burke was named after the airline (but I wouldn't know)

We know a little girl named Delta. I doubt she is named after the company, but I, and I'm sure others, have wondered the genesis of her name.

I suppose if Delta were to sponsor my offspring then I would consider some sort of naming rights.

When she is older, her sister Ryan Air might not appreciate her name.

Delta? Of course not, that'd be ridiculous.

If I had a kid, I would name him Isosceles.
