Do you have any family or friends with a famous name?
Do you know anyone who has a famous name from a celebrity, actor, or politician? How do they feel about their name?
I named my daughter Kennedy and she has no complaints yet but she is only 10. A couple of years ago she was a little upset because the Kennedy Space Center and John F. Kennedy used her name without her permission, lol. That was cute. Then she thought that she owned them. Then a little later on she thought she was famous because of all the places that were using her name. Lots of laughs and a lot of fun...
As far as I know, just the one. My cousins name is Sarah Brightman. Just like the singer.
I know someone with the same name as an actor that was famous from the 1960s-1980s. If she had a nickle for every time someone pointed it out to her, and another nickle for every person that thought they were the FIRST ONE to point it out to her... It's actually very irritating for her.
My paternal grandfather's cousin was Domenico Modugno (singer/songwriter of "Volare"), and I can tell you every man on my father's side of the family look like him, including my father. I've never really had issues with the name. But living in Brooklyn, the Italians are familiar with my last name not only from Domenico but because there is a city in Italy named Modugno. Wow, I really am famous! LOL
My sister's maiden name is Michelle Tanner. It is the same name as a character from the sitcom Full House. She got alot of comments about it in the late 80's and 90's.
