Subject: RE: BS: the funny business of names
I knew a couple back during the first Tolkein craze who named their son Bilbo...one guess what he was called once he started school. I understand that he came home one day, aged about nine, and announced that "my name is now John". It stuck, too.

I had a friend named Larry Sargent, who was Sargeant Sargent when he was in the army.
