Did not know that Steven was of greek derivation. Anyway, you could always go for Plum (as Apple is taken)

You could drop the "v" and change to "ph", the more elegant spelling.

This just brought me flashbacks of Steve Urkel / Stefan Urquelle. Oh man. So yes, you can go by Ste-fan (with the emphasis on the latter). It sounds cooler.


Or you could just go with something like Robert Jameson Spencer. I like that name, actually. I thought about using it as a nom de plume.

For some reason for me that names conjures images of Mark Twain in a seersucker suit, lol.

We have a plaque downstairs recognizing donations by old alumni (you know "...donated by the class of '09" and the like). On it, one of the guy's names is...Toadvin. I shit you not. Toadvin. Go for that one.

Or Moxie--I actually think that's a great name. I could do without the "Crimefighter" part, but Moxie is cool. But for a girl.

She did have certain sordid beginnings though.

Actually, they think my name is Jona and that I'm calling myself "san," which is something that just isn't done. They hate saying "Jonasan-san" because of the repetition of "san," which sounds odd to Japanese ears. Trying to teach every Japanese who utters my name to pronounce "th" properly would really be shovelling shit against the tide. The solution is to opt for "Adamusu-san"; problem solved.
