    Given how common my first name is, there is probably a blue million streets named that. My last name, not so much.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    Got a bunch through the south and east and of course the one in the town I live in. I so need to steal that street sign.

    My name is very popular along the east coast. Nothing in Hawaii!

Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    Several mostly in the east to Old Man River and then a break until the west coast region.

    Oddly enough there is a 3 house cul-de-sac with my formal name & a little lane using my nickname in my county .

    None for either my first or last name. I guess that makes me an original, right?
    How do I know you are who you think you are?
