"My name is Raynaldo. But since it's pretty irrelevant, people just call me Ray. Sometimes i even have trouble saying my own name, by pronouncing it, "Wray".
More and more often now. when i tell people my name, and that didn't hear me well, they think i said Grey. Which is pretty interesting to me because grey also sounds like a good name." Jan. 30, 2011:
