Most people have heard of Cain and Abel, the sons of Adam and Eve. But did you know there was a third son? According to Genesis, his name was Seth and he was born in Adam’s likeness and image. It was a known name in England during the Middle Ages but really took off after the Protestant Reformation in the 17th century. The name is simple, straightforward and biblical. Seth is the given name of Hollywood funnymen Rogan and MacFarlane, and we're not joking when we say, maybe baby will be just as funny.
