My brother's name is Lance. We're triplets- Lance, Samuel, and Patrick. I never thought his name sounded right with mine and Sam's but it sounds good with our other siblings (Cameron and Jessie). He's hands down the funniest kid I've ever met. Don't think his name suits him that much though. Maybe it fit better when we were younger but at 19 it doesn't seem right to me anymore. More of a little kid's name, it's gonna be weird when he's an old man.
I have a friend, his name is Lance, he has a very big family, one niece and one nephew which loves a lot. He loves his family, has friends who met at space school, he wanted to be a pilot, and ended up being an space lion pilot and a hero, and a lot of this crazy things. He's a bisexual role model. In the space he went with two of his closest friends, and his rival (who would be his boyfriend), and had a lot of sexuality issues due to girls and a boy. Now he's happily married to a mullet boy named Keith.
