How to Simplify: Name Your Son and Your Dog with the Same Name

What if you have a son and a dog, and you really, really like the name Bryan? Which one should get the name?

No need to choose! Edward Mahon, a mining and land baron in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, in the early 1900s, decided that he did not need to choose between his son and his dog. He named his son "Bryan" and his dog "Bryan Dog."

Thanks Tiffany!

We ended up adopting a dog with the same name as mine when I was in high school.

I once got very excited to have received mail with my name on it, as I didn't receive much mail at the time. Much to my disappointment I found out I was due for my rabies and distemper vaccinations.
