Too many Newman's are famous
Posted by Brooke-Jean Newman
Not to offend any of our blog readers who have the last name 'Newman', but ... there are just too many famous people who share your last name.
I like to google myself sometimes and see how many hits I can get that are actually directly related to me or something about me. Anyway, now that my last name is Newman it's a lot harder to find anything. There happens to be an author who shares my name - Brooke Newman. So, I guess when I write my book someday I'll have to either go by my maiden name or "Brooke Jean". As for "Ben Newman" - There is someone out in the world who sounds a lot like my Ben: "Ben Newman was born in 1982. His childhood was heavily influenced by American superheroes ... ". I guess there are a lot more famous people who share Ben's name than mine but the point still remains. There is only like a hand full of Brooke Huddleston's and I happen to be one of them.
I guess that's one of the great things that my maiden name gave me. It also gave me constant "What was that last name - Cuddleston" or "Did you say Puddleston" or "Huddleston ... uh ... can you spell that for me". Anyway, I am going to continue my google searching and see what would be a good alias for my future book (which I am planning on making me ridiculously famous).
