Mighty Quinn

With Quinn's recent arrival, it fell upon our shoulders to select the appropriate blogging nick name for our little guy.

Grandpa Bob recently reminded us of the song "Mighty Quinn" a folk-rock song written by Bob Dylan and covered by a ton of amazing artists including Manfred Mann, Black Crowes, Grateful Dead, and Phish . I myself love the song but never really knew what it was about. According to Wikipedia, the subject of the song is the arrival of the mighty Quinn, who changes despair into joy and chaos into rest. Some suggest that Quinn is a village elder. This is very fitting as the Irish/Gaelic meaning for Quinn is "counsel." We thought that "Mighty Quinn" serves as a great blogging nickname for our new addition.
