Hockey players are notoriously tough. They are likened to warriors often with how they play through seemingly any injury. They don't get compared to Spartans as much but it's the same idea.

That's what makes the middle name Colorado Avalanche forward Max Talbot and his wife Cynthia gave to their newborn boy on Thursday so appropriate and dare I say awesome.

This will work out so well for Mom and Dad Talbot because you can't say Spartacus without yelling and, well, if your parents are ever using your middle name then they're likely yelling.

For the NHL Baby middle name power rankings, we'll leave it up to you to decide which tops the list, Spartacus or Carter Seven Seabrook. Both are pretty spectacular if you ask me.

Really, only a guy as cool as Talbot could pull this off.
