are you two people? suggest either choose "more than one" or the initial you prefer

Just hoping your new last name doesn't begin with S or T

My first initial is E for Edward and my middle is E for Everett. Got all y'all beat.

One of my friends growing up always told us her middle name was Edward. We never believed her, because she was one of those people who constantly makes things up for fun. Like if a random person asked her if she had any brothers or sisters, she would give a different answer every time, just because she could. So we never once believed that she had a boy's middle name, because that was exactly the kind of nonsense she would have made up.

Found out years later that it really was Edward, because that was her mother's maiden name. And it was perhaps the only story she'd ever told that was true the first time, because she knew we'd never believe it.

Well, in this case it was all part of the game, to see if you could figure out the truth. She never made stuff up that hurt people. She was the first kid I ever knew to stand up for the idea that being gay wasn't an insult, at like age 10.

As long as she doesn't believe herself and is just fucking around.

So far it looks like J and L are winning at 3 each. I'm the first M. I actually used my middle name as my public name for about 15 years; I got teased about my first name all the way through grade school and half of middle school (or junior high, depending on the town) and when offered the chance to start 8th grade registered under my first initial and middle name, I jumped on it. Now I've finally left the bullying-related memories far enough behind that people other than doctors, state workers, and family get to use my first name again, even though my first name is short I'm getting tired of having to spell it over the phone because people constantly think it starts with an M but it actually starts with N. I know...first world problems, right?

Too bad there's no mnemonic device for such a situation.
