http://www.politico.com/blogs/burns-haberman/2012/04/santorum-bella-is-now-an-nra-life-member-120479.html

"Bella Santorum, Rick Santorums ailing three-year-old daughter, is now a life member of the National Rifle Association.

The ex-candidate announced at the NRAs annual meeting here Friday that he and his wife Karen have long been life members.

Now Bella is a life member of the NRA, he said. And I hope its a long life!"

This is pretty silly. She could always turn out to be anti-gun when she is older. Kids don't always turn out like their parents. Look at Ronald Wilson Reagan Jr. for example.

Why? She's three and most likely cannot use a firearm. This is kinda sad and weird at the same time (sad because of the genetic disease which dramatically shortens lifespans, weird because of the NRA involvement w/ a 3-year-old).

She's not likely to get much older. About 1% of kids with her condition live to age 10.

I think it's sad and weird. Just like when Santorum brought his dead fetus son home and him and his wife shared the bed with the dead fetus.

Did the fetus join the NRA, too?

Daughter, and I'm pretty sure "Bella" as a name is "beautiful," not "wars."

Edit: (Not that I'd be surprised if Ricky actually wanted to name his daughter "wars").

bellum, i, n means "war". "bella" as the feminine of "beautiful" is italian and doesn't have latin roots AFAIK.

LOL

BTW: Why does the NRA not endorse Obama for re-election ? Didn't gun sales increase by 200% or so during his first term ?

Neutral words of the second declination have -a in their plural. Therefore bella means wars.

And knowing Rick's love for the latter, we all know what etymology he'd prefer.

Still, as a Latin word it was relatively rare. 'Pulcher' was much more common.

Edit: Or 'is' much more common, as I'm obviously only talking about written texts.

A lot of words in later languages I have been told come from the less 'prestige', more plebeian versions of Latin words, so it's entirely possible that 'bellus' was actually more common in speech rather than just being slang or an unusual usage.


'Wars of the saints' is one of the more appropriate names for Rick Santorum's daughter.
