'Tis the season, boychik

A friend of mine told me years ago that Mel Blanc had a son named Noel. It's his only son, and it's a nice name, but few people would think much of it. I didn't, and apparently Mr. Blanc didn't either, until years after his son was born, when someone said to Mel, "Hey, you know that your son's name means 'White Christmas' in French?" And so it does. Mel had no idea, and found this very amusing. That's a hell of a name to have, if you're Jewish—which the Blancs are.
