It’s Misfarious!

File under: Names and Pre-Destination

In Ohio in the mid-nineties I remember watching the news and hearing about a guy they arrested (don’t remember the crime) whose name was “Nefchevious Matthews”.

I like the combination of Nefarious and Mischevious very much.

    Google sez: Murder.

    This makes me immensely joyful. Not for the murderee, of course. But that it’s real, and so fitting. Nominative determinism strikes again.

    Except that the word is “mischievous” not “mischevious” (which is a common mispronunciation).

    I’d ask what that poor guy’s parents were thinking, but I don’t think they were.
