Do you have an angle named after you?

Sarah and I were sitting at the desk while she was taking a math quiz. 

S:  Is it OK if I name this angle?
M: Sure.
S: I'm going to name it Angle M-O-M.
[I'm honored, so I choose not to mention that no two points should share the same letter.]
M: I've never had an angle named after me before!  I hope it's not an obtuse angle.
S: No, it's a right angle, because Mom's always right.
M: That's right. Haha!
S: Or I could make it acute...would you like to be acute?
M: That would be fine too, as long as I'm not obtuse.  I think I'd rather be right than acute though.
