Dozens of people in the United States have the last names “Hitler” and “Stalin” — 22 and 60, respectively, according to Whitepages.com. Do these people face interesting challenges day to day? Do they withhold their names when they introduce themselves? Were they born with the names, or did they actually choose them? (Adolf Hitler’s half-brother emigrated to the United States in the 20th century. Joseph Stalin’s daughter moved to the States, married an American and had a daughter.)
This is a story idea I’m working on that could provide an interesting look into the lives of these people. Do you have any interesting names: first or last, or even middle?
