what's in a name?


So, we're hiring a new guy, who I will be working directly with. His name is my name. My boss told me I have seniority, so the new guy and I will have to decide how we will differentiate between the two of us. I haven't had to think about this in a LONG time.

I'd use what my family calls me, but that's the name of another guy we work with. I'd use my middle name, but that's ANOTHER guy. The new guy had better have a middle name or another name he goes by, or we're stuck using our last names.

My only other option is JJ. And I'm not ok with that.


I would insist I be called Brigidier Lethbridge-Stewart.

You can always use a nickname. T-bone!

You could aways go by 'Luxury Yacht' which is of course pronounced 'Throatwobbler Mangrove'
