    Tell me: what in the known universe could possibly be objectionable with the name Admiral Boom?

    In the end, we chose a name that honors her family's horse-racing heritage: Thoroughbred.
    Oooo. Admiral Boom was a clever name. If that was still availible, I should love to have that. I think it was probably the "Boom" part of it. And possibly they didn't think of it at first. My guess though is that they didn't want any killing references.

    They killed PhoneDave - I guess because of the Phone part. I might seem as if i am soliciting people to call me. They ended up allowing KingSuperDave I would rather have had phonedave - I am phonedave in at least a dozen other places, forums, and sites. And no, I am not asking people to call me - I work in Telecomm, hence the name

    Probaly the intern who was checking names wasn't old enough to get the reference.... you must have caught the eye of a manager worried over possible lawsuits between flashbacks.

    One of my good friends on VMK is named IAmtheWalrus and has been so for over a year. That's probably the reason your name was changed, it was pretty much the same.
    Another friend had to fight to retain her name MaidenAmerica - her sister was able to keep her name MaidenDisney with no trouble.
    I really don't understand how some names get allowed. I ran across a boy named SissyQueen and geeze was somebody asleep at the wheel when His name came through for approval!

    Thats for safety reasons. Some people know where Bayonne is - such as me No worries, I am not some wacko, I just happen to live about 15 miles from Bayonne.
