I’ve never thought my name gave me so much respect. From The Roto Authority:
I didn’t actually do much digging, because the ESPN article pointed me directly to the blog of John-Charles Bradbury. I immediately knew I’d have to eat crow – dudes with two first names are rarely wrong.
Most people, when they are confused by my name—I go by John-Charles or J.C., not just my first or middle name like most normal people—they most often say, “Is that a Southern thing?” Translation: “Are you some kind of hick, or what?” I guess my accent doesn’t help the situation. I understand the confusion and don’t mind being called something other than what I grew up being called. I’m certainly not offended. But, I’m going to have to start throwing around this two-first-names thing more often.
