Not weird at all... Often kids like that that might acquire a name even though it may have originated maliciously or otherwise keep that name as it becomes almost a trademark and an identity that even friends come to use. They dont have the option of getting names that are cool so they take what they can get. JJF
Yes, I suppose that is a real possibility. Though it initially seemed like a put-on, recent revelations suggest that either Spenser is the real McCoy, or someone has gone to an awful lot of trouble to fabricate him.
