"I KNOW A GUY WHO IS ABOUT 50 YEARS OLD AND HE DOESN'T LIKE HIS NAME. HE'S BEEN CALLING HIMSELF "IAN" WHICH IS A FORM OF THE NAME JOHN. MANY PEOPLE DISAPPROVE OF THIS AND WON'T GO ALONG WITH CALLING THE MAN WHAT HE WANTS TO BE CALLED. HIS NAME WAS "CLYDE" AND THAT'S NOT POPULAR RIGHT NOW. I THINK PEOPLE OUGHT TO RESPECT HIS WISH TO BE CALLED "IAN"." May. 23, 2011:
