Remington Steele or...
Ages ago, after we found out we were having a boy, I asked for my blog audiences help in finding a name (click here to look back at the post). A new record of 24 commenters gave suggestions. I promised Dutch Bucks to the first person to suggest the name we ended up choosing for our little guy. 2 people suggested Remington, my mom and my sister-in-law Kelly. It isn't very fair because both knew that we were partial to the name for its significance and not because of Remington Steel. Read this:
Remington Arms is a major American manufacturer of rifles, shotguns, other firearms, revolvers and ammunition. Remington was founded in 1816 by Eliphalet Remington II who believed he could build a better gun than he could buy. Farming communities in the region were famous for their diverse skills and self-sufficiency, and the winter seasons were used for crafts that provided goods for self-use and also for sale. Eliphalet's father was a blacksmith, and wanted to expand his business into rifle barrel production. Later, the firearms business became Remington Arms Company. During the Great Depression, Remington purchased the Peters Cartridge Company; today, many of the Remington headstamps still have R-P on them for Remington-Peters. -- From Wikipedia.org
