I often get asked, â€śWhat is your name?â€ť to which I reply, â€śNo, it isnâ€™t.â€ťÂ I get a funny look, so they ask again.Â I reply with the same answer.Â Finally, I say, â€śNo is not my name!â€ťÂ I guess I heard the â€śWhoâ€™s on first?â€ť routine too many times.Â Have you ever given much thought to your name? Who you are named after, and what your name means, etc.?Â
