These two names in 2013 bar passers list made everyone’s Day
Every year many law students are wrapped with anxiety as they wait for the master list of bar exams passers. Yesterday marked another day of jubilation for those who passed and another year of disappointment for those who failed.
But if you’re one of many who couldn’t care less who passed or failed, the 2013 list is still worth checking because of two unbelievably funny and creative names.
Nat King Coles
No, this bar passer doesn’t have a booming voice. But he is thankful that he has at last passed the bar. Nat King Coles (pronounced Co-les) said this is his second time to take the bar. He is currently a professor at the Eastern Samar University.
How did he get his name? Nat King explained that his father chose that name since he was a fan of the original jazz crooner Nat King Cole (whose real name is Nathaniel Adams Coles).
Habeas said that it wasn’t his name that eventually drew him to taking up law. The 25-year-old full-time teacher at the University of San Carlo, Visayas said that it was just a coincidence his father named him after the Latin writ habeas corpus that means ‘bring the body before the court.’
The new lawyer said he was born during the height of the EDSA Revolution, which eventually had his father inspired. This is the first time Habeas took the bar and he is the first lawyer in their family.
