I think I might be the only person in the world with my name. I've only ever heard of a handful of people with the same first name, and they're spelled different. My last name is just some generic German though.

Edit: He's here. Fuzzy has arrived to usher in summer.

Wait, if you're last name is German, where does MacLeod come from?

I've Googled myself and I'm the only one. :P Not surprising, although I know probably 6 people with the same first name, and can think of at least 2 famous people that have slight variations on my name. My last name is pretty uncommon (in the US at least) and is actually more common in Germany, which is odd because it's the Anglicized version of the name instead of the straight German.

A lot of names were 'altered' when families came across the ocean ... in efforts to blend in, to hide from oppressors chasing them, or even some to avoid their family's bad reputations from following them in the new world.

@Napo: MacLeod comes from Highlander. Connor Macleod is the Highlander. I just realized something funny. My screen name has a 2 in it, but there can be only one!

Wait. So my entire life I could have been legally declaring myself Hispanic on official documents? I thought Hispanic was a narrower term, but apparently it just means that you have ancestors from the Iberian Peninsula, or come from a culture related to Spain. Wow. My families census reports aren't accurate I guess. Also, if this is the case... why the hell is it so hard for me to get a tan?

@Mac: Spaniards are fair skinned; the darker skin came in with the mix of Indian bloods ... if I remember right.

@SViking: that's awesome!

@mC: Yeah. I know. That was part of the joke. I actually can get a tan too, but I'm just not active enough in the outdoors for it to last. I had a good one going last summer. Maybe I can get it back. It involves a lot of sun burns for me though.

Spent 2 hours working on the rear drivers side door on my car, still can't get it to open. Got tired of it after cutting my hand open on the inside of the panel, after which I let loose a string of obscenities. Got the window to work though, progress!
