Henry..name names I have the name of an actress, though spelled differently..Linda Pearl~ Linda Purl. She was in Happy Days and in Matlock, with Andy Griffith.

Often when I call a company or order something, I am asked..Is this the actress? I say,if I answer yes, what does it get me?

I emailed an author once,and that was his first question to me! On Facebook, there are a few of us!

You have it doubly because your husband has a famous first and last name .

I also just remembered that a guy who I know who is an athlete (retired)has the same name as a sportswriter at a NY newspaper.

A friend of my mother's cousin had a friend whose maiden name was Liz Borden. Then she got married and became Liz Taylor, then she divorced, and remarried and she became Taylor Swift.

Default names the same

my husband is Bill Elliott - same as the race car driver. The one big difference is if my husband drove that way he would get tickets :-)

HA! The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) DOES drive just like Bill Elliott, but she has escaped tickets for quite some time now. Maybe my former involvement in law enforcement has something to do with that.

What a coincidence... a really good friend of my pharmascist is an accountant.His name isn't Rodney Dangerfield, but he does look like Eli Wallach, who used to be my next door neigbhor's podiastrist.

I has a podiatry problem so went to see him, but he was ill that day, so I had to settle for his partner, Micheal Angelo. He introduced me to his wife who happened to be visiting the office that day, who is a determinatologist, Katherine Zita.... now that I thought was a funny name for a determatologist.

If you're having a problem determining what you want to post next, you consult a determinologist.

My married surname is Oakley so I always get the following questions:

Are you any relation to Annie?

Are you any relation to the basketball player?

Are you any relation to the eyeglass folks?

I always answer "yes". !
