"I love the name, but hate it when people try to turn it into Daniel. They are not the same name. Dan, the son of Jacob, lived about a millennium before Daniel, the prophet." Mar. 20, 2021:
"i simply love this name, and a boy called Dan as well . he is great and i love this name. hopefully ill call my son Dan jr ." Feb. 27, 2007:
"I've always like my first name (now my last name, that's another matter). It has biblical origins, was never teased in school about my name, and other guys with the same name have always been cool. It's also a 3-version name: I sign Daniel on documents, prefer to be called Dan by those around me, and was called Danny when I was little (my grandmother still calls me that...ugh)." Aug. 19, 2005:

"The actor of Etof Tribe Knight Dan/TriceraRanger, the original Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger (i.e. Dinosaur Task-Force Beast Rangers) incarnation of Billy Cranston/Blue Power Ranger from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, is Hideki Fujiwara (Billy's actor is David Yost), who before Zyuranger (the 1992 Super Sentai in Japan) played another character called Dan, a warrior of the Back Dimension, in eps.23-24 of Choujin Sentai Jetman (Birdman Task-Force Jetman). Fujiwara's Jetman character got killed off in ep.24, however" Aug. 26, 2010:
"Its ok, I wish I had a more creative name, but it's solid." Nov. 30, 2009:
"Before Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger (Dinosaur Squadron Beast Rangers) which spawned Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, there was an even earlier Super Sentai show, Kagaku Sentai Dynaman (Scientific Squadron Dynaman), the 1983 show later aired in the U.S. as a dubbed parody on the TV show Night Flight, and Dan, of course, is the surname of the character Hokuto Dan aka DynaRed (his name is Wooshi in the parody). But, yes, one of the Zyurangers is Dan/TriceraRanger, who I prefer to his American counterpart Billy Cranston the Blue Power Ranger in MMPR (even though Billy may be somewhat like another one of the Dynamen, Yousuke Shima aka DynaBlue - called 'Frankie' in the Night Flight parody dub of Dynaman)." Oct. 30, 2009:
"In the 1992 Japanese television program 'Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger' (Dinosaur Squadron Beast Rangers) which spawned 'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers' in the United States, the original wearer of the Blue Power Ranger costume prior to Billy Cranston's doing so in the American version was the Etof Tribe Knight Dan, aka TriceraRanger and the Warrior of Courage. I've watched some episodes of the Japanese version in recent times and I find Dan very funny. Okay, he may be a bit of an airhead at times, with his sometimes tending to act before thinking, but at the same time he's such a laugh, not to mention a ladies' man. He's probably the funniest out of all the Zyurangers." Mar. 18, 2009:
