Last year, my Bruce Pearl, got many FB friend requests to be the "other" Bruce's friend.
Many years ago I was standing in the cleaners, and, had to give my name, as did the man next to me,and we both said Pearl at the same time...it was funny..Only recently did I learn his son's name is Bruce,and yes, he is the, Bruce, the famous one. ! We all lived in the same town too.

No one who meets me asks if I am related to Mean Joe Green. Our college newspaper used to carry the syndicated columnist Bob Greene (Chicago.) I had a few people ask if that was me.
All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; John Masefield

Berry is my last name. I can only think of Chuck Berry. No one has ever asked if we were related.

Certainly not my last name, but I am often told I look like Celine Dion (must be my French Canadian blood). On the other hand, my husband's last name is Sheen, and we always say "like Charlie Sheen, but NO we are not related!"
