John Doe

Funny blog post (by Caterina Fake of Flickr) with lots of very interesting comments by people having trouble with their names. Worth a read.

two comments, already:

That reminds me of the time when I was in a pen-and-paper roleplaying group. We played Shadowrun, and I was a troll named “John Doe”, sister “Jane Doe” :D

I shouldn’t have told the group why I did chose the name, it made a lot of trouble for my character ;)

I’ve a run of trouble with my name, the first name on my passport is Tai, which is my chinese surname (with my english surname at the end). Now, the hospital has me, my mum and my sister all listed with Tai as our first name, and with the same surname… I got called for a smear test >.
