Californians are funny.
My first serious boyfriend had the first and last name of an old Hollywood actor. It made it reeeally hard to Google him in later years (you know, to find out if he was miserable without me.) So, I guess that's a bonus for him.
LOL! That is hysterical! I must say I have not had not been in a situation quite like that.
BUT I'm afraid I'm going to put myself in a similar. I am in love with the name Noah Ryan (Ryan is the name of my brother). But I live in Texas. One of the most famous Texas Rangers baseball players is Nolan Ryan. Every time I mention Noah Ryan, the response I get is "after the pitcher??" Le sigh. It takes that one off of the table. Hmpf.
My nephew has a name like that. Only his is the arch-nemesis of a superhero! It has one very slight difference, but every time I say his first and last name together I cringe. To keep his privacy since it's his first and last name, I'll use another example. Catwoman's real name is Selina Kyle and my nephew's name is Serena Kyle. Only, IMO, it's even closer than that! But sis-in-law thought it was different enough that no one will notice.
I didn't realise having a drug free birth made someone a "sanctimommy". o.0
