in reply to Name Space

Here's my little bit on my name:

When I was a kid, I loved the "books of lists" that you could pick up cheap, I'd read them and re-read them, among many, many other books when I was younger. I also have a strange memory, I don't remember poo in the short term, but I'll remember nearly verbatim something I read years and years ago.

Anyway, Hero Zzyzzx was supposedly the least common name in the United States, according to one book of lists, so I figured I'd be pretty safe adopting it for my online handles. I rather like it, though it's kind of a pain to spell.

The irony here is that my real name is probably as rare as Hero Zzyzzx, given that my wife has a rare last name, and my (ahem) maiden name is rare too.

indistinguishable from doubletalk.
