John Smith Spreekt De Waarheid

“Trendy, unique names may be the cat’s pajamas for some people, but not John Smith. The 52-year-old from Sylvania Township, Ohio, is not at all bothered by having perhaps the most common of names.

“It’s been easy for me because people don’t get my name wrong, they can spell it, and it’s very easy to remember,” he said. “I’m a sales guy, so that all helps out.”

Other people can do what they want, but Smith is happy with traditional names. Names are kind of like tattoos, he said. You want to pick one that will still be good when you’re 85.”
