What's in a Name?
I wanted to write a bit about my name. The name on my profile is my real name. I’m not sure if my parents did this on purpose, but look at my name: snemelc leumas. Now, read it from right to left. It says Samuel Clemens. In school when I learned Mark Twain’s real name I immediately noticed it was my name spelled backward. I asked my mom about it but she said it wasn’t intentional. I guess it could be a coincidence, but it seems a strange one to me. And what are the odds that I enjoy writing and my name is that of a famous writer spelled backward. I guess being from a foreign country and all it is possible my parents didn’t even know who Mark Twain was, but it is cool when I see the name.
