  1. So I’ve been thinking of changing my last name to Brown. But I’m a little too attached to my actual name.

    Thanks for the link.

    • Brigid Alverson says

      Oops! Sorry, Derek—it’s fixed now!

      • Thanks. I normally don’t care, since everyone adds the r in there, but since I’ve realized that I could probably have legal problems if the wrong person gets my name wrong (ie/ government type persons), I’ve decided I needed to be more anal about it anytime someone gets it wrong.

        Though I am amused anytime my name is misspelled next to Ash’s. Makes me think people are wondering if we’re related. XD

  2. Thanks for linking to the GGNT list! :)
