Cool Pope Names: Lando (r. 913-914)

Ok, so there's not much to say here, but I think everyone should know that before there was Lando Calrissian there was in fact a Pope Lando. The only one. Maybe whoever comes after Benedict XVI (God keep him) will choose this most excellent and inter-stellar of papal names, and we will have a Pope Lando II.

Hilarious?

Yes, there was a 5th C. pope named Hilarius, which is in actuality probably the same word where we get hilarious. It means Cheerful in Greek.

Our pastor emeritus urges a "hilarious" exchange of greetings whenever he preaches, coming from the same Greek word.
