What's in a name?

Rigel Orion Wallace

Rigel is pronounced like Nigel with a R. He's named after a star in the Orion constellation. Rigel is the brightest star as seen from Earth. It's actually only the second brightest star in the constellation though. His name means "foot of the great hunter."

He gets the Wallace surname from my brother. As young boys, my brother Stephen and his buddies made up fake British names to prank call people. Stephen was Nigel Wallace. Since Rigel is a Yorkshire Terrier, I thought this was a fairly fitting name. Stephen agreed.
