Speak of the devil

29 years I’ve had this name and only now have I realised that the devil’s in it. This file was a photo of my (now dead) Maxtor hard drive.
Oh no!
I’m a little shaken, amused and depressed. My Chinese name means US dollar, which is depreciating, and my English name has ‘satan’ in it.

    From Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, 1594:
    What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
    By any other name would smell as sweet;

    I once had an email username that was “satan”. First two letters of first name + last name. Just had it for a summer, though, so I didn’t use the account.

    I have at least 3 other friends who “have Satan” in their names. Considering that “Tan” is a common surname, and “sa” appears at the end of lots of first names, I think there are many others who will read your blog entry and discover that they too are in the same boat. 😉
