How many have your name?

It’s not a terribly uncommon name. I’ve never actually met anyone with my name, but I’ve come close. I have a couple of cookbooks on my shelves written by someone with the exact first, middle, and last name I have. When I was a senior in high school, we had a student transfer in whose name was Wheeler Ronald Stevens, which is eerily close to being mine in reverse (my middle name is Robert).

I keep thinking that I should someday write an autobiography for my “about” page that uses the results from a Google search to produce a life history that is more interesting (if totally fanciful) than my own. Given that one of the people who comes up when you search on one of the variants of my name is an ice-skating stage magician, that wouldn’t be hard to do, and might turn out to be quite fascinating.
