in reply to Do you have a middle name?

I use my middle name; I'm rather forced to. My parents named me after a very good friend of my father's who died in Vietnam right before I was born. However, they didn't realize that "Richard Burton" was also about to be a world-famous actor. And what's more, there are a lot of Richard Burtons out there. Many more than you'd think. So I tend to use my middle name to keep things clear, since some of my very extended family tend to do some rather unsavory things.

    Good name Burton... "Richard Burton" it has gravitas! much in the same way as

    Bond ... "James Bond" stick with it tbone1

      Reminds me of the Russ Abbott line, "The name's Bond ... Basildon Bond. I have letters after my name."

      Cheers,
