The Slice

Name game

Exchanged emails the other day with a nice guy whose first name is Damon.

At some point I asked him how often people heard his name and alluded to its use in the “Star Trek” universe as a word meaning captain or commander among the Ferengi.

He said it had not come up, at least not that he was aware of. “I get called 'Damien' as in 'The Omen' a lot.”

I'm not sure which association would be more troubling.
