    Default Know anyone with the same name as a famous person?

    One of my classmate's name is Timmy Chang (his older brother is Ryan Chang, who attends the same school as me).

    Tim is a good video game player, and knows a lot about computers, and he says that he didn't play any sports.

    If you want a pic of him with his brother, you'd have to wait three weeks, as school's out for summer.
    How'd I get so white and nerdy?

    Do last names only count? When N'Sync was big, we got phone calls at all hours from every eleven-year-old and every slumber party on Oahu asking "Is Justin there?"

    Arrrgh!

    Fortunately, either the kids have gotten smarter, Justin's fallen out of favor, or both.

    I don't if he's famous but his name is trippy....kinda. A classmate of mine is named Mike Kim. What's trippy about that? It's Mike Kim foward and miK ekiM backwards too.

    Not personally... but remember that guy in NZ whose name was Kevin Spacey? The guy died and it was all over the papers and stuff.. ended up being just some poor snow-boarder from NZ.

    How about knowing someone with the same name who's infamous for committing a crime?

    Just opened the Hawaiian Telcom phone book and there was no James Bond listed. Must be a Montreal thing. But there were 3 Don Hos.

    Once looking for interesting names in the phone book, I was amazed at the amount of guys named Michael Jackson.
    I'm disgusted and repulsed, and I can't look away.

    The driver of this race car (LINK) is named Jeff Ruddy. Same as me.

    He's pretty famous in New York any ways.

    I grew up in So. Cal with Boyd Coddington.
    Called him up at his custom car shop after not seeing/talking to him in 10 years, he answered, and after a few shaky moments and questions discovered it was ANOTHER Boyd Coddington who was now famous, was in the same general neighborhood, into hot rods, same general age, sounded and looked like my old buddy.

    I'll never get over that one.

    A guy at work has a name that sounds the same as that of a famous brat packer. He told a story of being paged at a mainland airport and found that when he got to the gate where he was being paged to, there was a LOT of women hanging around. He quietly identifed himself to the person at the gate so as not to create an uproar.

    I met a guy named "Maxwell Smart". He's one of the actors in "All for Melissa", the film that screened last year at HIFF and released as a DVD this past week at Borders.

    Max Smart is his real given name, not a stage name.

    My co-worker's name is Steve Martin. He's the last thing removed from being a Wild and Crazy Guy. He, in turn, has a client named Gene Simmons!

    When I was in college we had a fraternity pledge named Paul Newman. He was never referred to as anything but "Paul Newman". Not "Paul", not "Newman", not "Pledge", etc. "Paul Newman". Was hard not to smirk every time you heard it.

    Don't want to hijack the topic, but aw geez, I just noticed diamond3121's avatar. We just had a nice round of bagging on Seeking Penance in another thread. Now we have another $C fan athletic supporter here?

    A friend of mine here in Seattle married a man with the same name as someone who killed several people in Hawai`i. I nearly did a double-take when I first met him, as it wasn't long after the crime had been committed.

    I went to high school with a guy named Bruce Springsteen, and he was also from New Jersey. We tried to get backstage to see The Boss on the "Born To Run" tour - a crew member took my friend's driver's license backstage to show him, but they still didn't let us in.

    Knew the infamous James Lounsbery that murdered little Maile Gibert many years ago. This heinous act begat the Maile Alert to help save others from such tragedy.

    Coming back home in Ka'a'awa with friends, we actually saw James heading opposite/Kailua bound and pulled over and talked to him, of course not realizing that in a short time he'd become a child killer.
    Had we only known...

    Is there a 1st Muddah?

    I'm sorry. I went too far. I'm going to take a hiatus.

    Well I met a guy in line at KMart who said he shares his name with a famous person, "Bob Jones", but I did not know of any famous person with that name....
    Now run along and play, but donít get into trouble.

    One of my high school classmates re-married a decade ago to a BOB HOPE (no, she said he's not particularly humorous).
