"My name is Lucas, ends up often shortened to Luke. Since Star Wars came out, hundreds of people have claimed to be my father. "Luke, I am your father." That isn't even the line people.
I thought my name was kind of dorky growing up. But I like it fine now. The name used to be unknown, but there are a lot more now. Especially among white folk.
Oh, rhymes with mucus. Ends in ass. But kids can find something wrong with any name, if they don't like you." Nov. 22, 2015:
