The name on my birth certificate is the same as that of a once-popular male comic strip character, but it still sounds like a girl's name. When I was growing up, telephone operators always thought I was a girl because of it.

My surname is that of a once-popular rock-n-roll singer. It sounds cool only when you pronounce it with a European accent, like in The Blue Max.

I try to avoid using both.
