The truth about Napoleon Einstein

There is a reason for his name, and it is a good one. This is what he told Cricinfo:

"My grandfather was a scientist. He wrote a letter to Albert Einstein and even got a reply from him. I've got no idea [what the letter was about] even though I've read it. My mother was a physics graduate and she teaches Physics in one of the schools. So I'm Einstein. Napoleon is my father's name."

Best story behind a name ever. It's like mashing two separate pieces of intelligence together in a not-so-intelligent way. But wait, it gets better:

"We don't believe in God. In our family, we're rationalists. Other people are named Krishna and Ram after Gods, so we were named Einstein and Napoleon after great people."

He comes from a family of religious miscreants. I like it.

Napoleon Einstein: he'd be your best friend too if you knew him as well as I did.

This reminds me of a friend i had in college. He was called Russell, named after Betrand Russell.

See, the nerdy Indians like their Physics and Physicists.

Amy said...

Yeah, they really do seem to.

Was Russell just his first name? Did he have an Indian last name or was it all out like Napoleon's?

Napolean Einstein is a special case with weird first and second names.

My friend's second name was very much Indian.

Amy said...

All the more reason for him to be my best friend.

I love the "we don't believe in God, we're rationalists"!! I'm with you buddy! Will you share him with me Amy?

Amy said...

Sure, I never staked a claim on anyone. Cheers.

Just thought I'd ask first .. I might be French but I'm not rude ;)

Why is his last name Einstein? I know the Catholics often take their father's name as their last name, but then he would be Einstein Napoleon. Also, I know a bunch of Indians (some kind of Catholic -- either Malayali, Knanaya, Goan, or Anglo-Indian) with "non-Indian" first and last names, but this is a really unusual one.
