Name Trivia

Gordon Sumner, the rock star and actor known as Sting, got his nickname from the yellow-and-black jerseys he used to wear, which fellow musicians thought made him look like a bumble bee. Singer Johnny Cash was born J. R. Cash. He chose the first name John when the military wouldn’t accept just initials on its forms.

Interesting. I've wondered where Sting's monicur came from.
