WHAT THE HELL

Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Naming Rites

Logo There are
190
people with my name in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

This always happens to me. I went to open a Twitter account yesterday and had to settle for @kevinbrennan520 because some other Kevin Brennan got more hip to the Twitter before me. I never knew until the computer machine really took off that so many dudes out there were named Kevin Brennan, but it’s been a thorn in my side for years now.

There’s a musician Kevin Brennan who took all the best usernames and domains. There’s Kevin Brennan the legislator in New Zealand. There’s Kevin Brennan, funeral director (I finally got my name on a building!), Kevin Brennan the comedian (proud creator of “Half-Baked”), and sundry Kevin Brennans with no particular claim to fame. They’re blocking my online identity every time I turn around!

At least I was able to avoid Twitter’s first suggestion for my handle: @kevinbr8&4%20#.
