This is kind of a cute story.

The Great Philosopher Aristotle named his Treatise on Ethics for his illegitimate son Nicomachus who he fathered with one of his Slaves. Or, at least, when I was in school that was the story we were told. Now Wikipedia says that the book may have been written in honor of Aristotle’s Father who was also named Nicomachus. Nicomachus grew up to be a Philosopher just like dear old Dad.
