Names from my daughter's yearbook

I have barely started to look at it and will post some of the gems later, but will start with the celebrity category: two eighth graders named Nicole Richie and Ariana Grande. The poor things. I have a very good friend who never got comments on his name until 10th grade when Moonlighting debuted. Then it was all over for him, to the point that he occasionally has to submit documents to prove his name is really his name. He is Bruce Willis.

I once worked with a man called Neil Armstrong. Everyone was under strict instructions to never page him over the speakers by his full name, because it caused so many troubles for him. OTOH My husband has also taught more than one Michael Jackson, and those kids didn't seem to be treated any differently in the playground.

I went to flight training with a Harrison.  I'll let you guess the last name, think broomsticks and Quidditch.  He didn't go by Harry, but that is the name my flight instructor put in his log, so he could say "I went flying with Harry P."
