Okay everybody, the question is in the title.  I have wanted to say this a number of times.  I even asked my Chinese teacher once, and I couldn't communicate the concept to her.  To tell the truth, I couldn't understand why she couldn't get it.  Maybe Chinese doesn't have a special way of saying it.  For example, would this be the normal way:

因为我和老婆特别骄傲奥运会,所以我们叫我么的孩子“奥运”。
