Off Limits

As I have been moved to comment before, my work gives me insight into the private worlds of many self-important and semi-delusional people.The following words are henceforth declared off limits for use as last names/surnames, unless you were un/fortunate enough to be born with one of them:

Love
Faith
Claire
Truth
Lee
Leigh
Leeigh
Lea
Jeremy
Christmas
Hanukkah
Easter
Valentine
Edward
Henry
Stuart
Windsor
Any variation of your middle name
The name of any mythical creature
Any existing surname significantly more boring than your original one. Don’t be a Smith when you can be a Von Dumbcourt. You’ll be much more memorable this way.

And no one–no one–will take you seriously if your name is Trisha Love Christmas.
