There is a special word in Spanish, when two people have the same name. The word is tocayo . It does not mean namesake, which implies that one person is named for the other. It merely means that two people share the same name. Search engines have elevated this awareness to an art form. The highest and best use of the Internet is obviously not Star Trek or romance, but Google-stalking oneself and one’s friends. Case in point: Joe Puglia. Joe is a prince among men and clearly does not deserve my attention.
