Loaded meaning...

Posted by Michael_Lichten on 28 Nov 2007 at 21:08 GMT

genitor |ˈjenitər|
noun Anthropology
a person's biological father. Often contrasted with pater.

Also, it seems to me that dene and bene are pretty close to (what I was taught as) the classic meanings of genotype and phenotype, which are similarly linked.
