Being pedantic, if we're going for the the BC-AD analogue, his birth was AP, and before his birth was BP.

BC stands for Before Christ, and AD stands for Anno Domini, which means "In the year of our Lord" in Latin.

Yeah, as a recovering Catholic, I knew that. But then we might best go with APR, which stands for 'Anno Purple Rain'.
