Coolest. Name. Ever.

Yesterday I came across what is surely the coolest name ever: Melchior Vulpius.

He was an early Lutheran hymn composer. Apparently his family name was originally Fuchs, but he Latinized it to Vulpius, a fact which thoroughly confounded me until I learned that fuchs is German for “fox.” Thanks, Babelfish!
