For years, I went by the name “Allan” in order to answer tech support emails more quickly.
People around the office would jokingly call me Allan, and it would be interesting when someone would show up wanting to thank Allan for his help or call or something. He was always unavailable and the department head, Heather would come to greet them 😉
I even got a shirt that said “Hello, my name is Allan.” to wear around. It became sort of legendary.
So, I’ll stick with Allan. He’s a good guy. 😉
