Science rules?

I saw a couple checking out of maternity and went to look at their baby. It looked very much like my baby. All the babies here look pretty similar. I asked the child's name.
     "Sagan," said the mom.
     "Really!" I replied, overjoyed that there was another science baby on the ward. What were the odds? "Named for Carl Sagan?" I gushed, eager to tell her about Tesla.
     She winced slightly. "No... Tyler. " When I looked blank, she elaborated: "Bruins."
     Ah. An awkward silence.
     She named her baby after Tyler Seguin, a hockey player.
