I'd always assumed that the surname of the "smartest woman in the world," Marilyn vos Savant, was an assumed one, considering the incredible coincidence that a person with an insanely high IQ would just happen to be named something that translates roughly into "Your Learned One."

But apparently it's legit! It's her mother's maiden name, which she took because she opposes the traditional practice of children taking the father's surname instead of the mother's.

So I think I'm going to name my kids "Supra-Genius," "Gifted Athlete," and "Savior of the World," or their foreign-language equivalents.

Or better yet, find a woman whose last name translates to "The Next Step in Human Evolution" or "God Among Men" and marry her. We'll see if this pans out.
