Good Morning Groanies,
The other day I was talking with my dad and I asked him how my brother and I got our names.
He told me that my mom came up with our names and that he actually had much different names in mind. He wanted to name me - Hey, You! And when my brother came along he wanted him to go by - What's His Name?
When I inquired into the reasoning for these names dad told me, "When I needed you all I'd have to say is, 'Hey, you! Where's what's his name?'"
"But what if you wanted the other one?" I thought aloud. Dad's response was, "Then we would have switched your names when we named you." That didn't make much sense, but the commercial break was over and what dad was watching, NCIS
I think, was back on.
After uncovering this information I'm quite happy with Steve. You'd be hard pressed to find a souvenir license plate at Disney World with Hey, You or What's His Name? on it.
