    My brother named his child Mason. I think there should be some sort of penalty for that.

    Dylan. But following the pattern of how I got my name, my mother would have wanted to name me Liam, but settled for Dylan when my father objected.

    In the 1890's I would have been named Alfred, rather than William.

    Yep. Didn't realize how lame my name was.
    Every master plan has one overarching contingency that will be required for success: desenrascanço. In light of this, it is tempting to skip the planning phase and just make desenrascanço your master plan. I don't recommend this, but it has worked out for me in the past to an alarming degree. The problem is it keeps you too focused on the short term to ever improve your situation in the long.

    The best part of this thread is definitely reverse-looking up people's real names.

    Isaiah. Just no.

    I found it interesting that my 1990s and 1970s name is Vincent.

    Benny. That would be all right, but I doubt I could convince anyone that my middle name was "and the Jets".

    David Wong, regarding Chicago
    Six centuries ago, the pre-Colombian natives who settled here named this region with a word which in their language means "the Mouth of Shadow". Later, the Iroquois who showed up and inexplicably slaughtered every man, woman and child renamed it "Seriously, Fuck that Place". When French explorer Jacques Marquette passed through the area he marked his map with a drawing of a brownish blob emerging from between the Devil's buttocks.

    You could if you had electric boots and a mohair suit (I read it in a magazine!)
