If you could, what would you change your name to? Max? Sara? Lou Diamond Philips?
One New Zealand man stepped up to the plate and hit a home run. He changed his name to "Mc Lovin."
That's right, taking a cue from the movie Superbad, the man formerly known as Gary Fisher became Mc Lovin — that's first name "Mc," last name "Lovin" — following the sudden death of a close friend, which sent him into a deep depression. He says that the name serves as a reminder to not take life so seriously.
Mc Lovin wasn't his first choice, though. — another option included "Skeletor Overlord Evil." But that's really only worth it if you're willing to go through four years of medical school to become Dr. Evil.
The name change has been a positive experience. Lovin's mother thought the new name was hilarious, as did a police officer who pulled Lovin over and asked to take a picture of his license. Things seem to be going pretty well for Mr. Lovin — certainly better than they went for the last guy who changed his name to McLovin.
