|What's in a name? Everything. Or nothing. Or anything in between. Take my favorite name of all time, for example.
That's a great name! Short, sweet and easy. People rarely forget your name when introduced to you at a party if your name is BOB (assuming the night is still young when introductions are made). And as the evening progresses and some may begin to slur their words, BOB still comes out pretty close to BOB. Then as it gets later into the celebration some folks may even start getting a few names and words backwards. But for our friend BOB, even that works out alright because BOB backwards is still BOB.
But what about the real partiers? They might start getting words, phrases and names sideways, upside down, inside out where you can hardly understand a word they're saying. But no matter what you do to BOB it always comes out BOB. Think about it. There are so many ways to screw up just about any name out there - but how could anyone ever mess up BOB? You can't even mess it up with a mirror. Even if you're not the guy who could always read stuff upside down on other peoples desks, you can still make out BOB. It's just too obvious.
Here's an added benefit to the greatest name. No one will ever come up to you at a party with tears in their eyes, prancing feet and their hand grasping their crotch, asking if you know where the nearest BOB is. In that most uncomfortable state, they're always searching for JOHN.
