What's in a Name?

Thanks to Jayme Blaschke for the link.

Woman Sues Porn Star Over Name - Local News Story - KPRC Houston
HOUSTON -- A Houston-area woman filed a lawsuit against a porn star, claiming she stole her name, KPRC Local 2 reported Sunday.

Lara Madden, 25, is an actress in the pornography industry. She is a former Houstonian who has appeared in about a dozen X-rated movies under the stage name "Syvette Wimberly."

That's the problem.

The real Syvette Wimberly was one of Madden's classmates at Kingwood High School. The women knew each other in the ninth grade.

So my using Barack Obama as my porn name isn't advisable?

Bill Crider said...

Maybe after the election.

Bill went the George Costanza route and used "Buck Naked" for his.

Anyway, sounds like a coincidence to me. There must be lots of Syvette Wimberleys out there, right?

Bill Crider said...

Sure there are. Syvette is a common name in Texas.
