what's the cubert thing about?
I've been asked by a few people why I use the name cubert. It has nothing to do with the 80's video game. My partner and I have a Pembroke Welsh Corgi. When we were researching names we decided to give her a real Welsh name. We came up with several, but many were nearly unpronounceable by us. We finally came up with Beti, which is the Welsh spelling of the English name Betty and pronounced the same way. Here is Beti as a puppy.
But that doesn't explain why I took the nickname cubert. While doing this research for Beti I stumbled across the name Cubert. In Welsh mythology he was the son of Daenre, a succubus, and an unnamed hero. I like mythology, I liked the name, so I took this as my own. :-)
