Man Named Taylor Swift Wants To Change His Name (VIDEO)
A man named Taylor Swift says he’s considering changing his name. Check out the video below.
Taylor Swift, a 30-year-old Washington State resident, was interviewed by NBC’s “Today” about sharing a name with the 25-year-old pop superstar. The male Swift, of course, made his way into the world first, but it’s the female Swift who is dominating it. And the photographer is finding it hard to develop his own career in the singer’s shadow.
Asked if he’s considered changing his moniker, the elder Swift admits, “Oh yeah. I’ve thought about it several times.” He goes on to note, “I’m still like 10,000 pages back on a Google search.” With the younger Swift one of the most-searched people on the Internet, it’s rather hard for anyone else with that name to develop a web presence.
And yes, there are more. An NBC investigation found more than 60 people in the United States with the name “Taylor Swift,” ranging in age from 20 to 60. For this Swift, sharing the name means getting lots of misdirected fan mail. Of course, there are some perks, too, like easily scoring restaurant reservations.
Mr. Swift doesn’t reveal the origins of his name, or indicate how seriously he’s thinking about changing it. But when you consider he also has blonde hair and blue eyes, and shares the same middle initial, the situation goes to a whole different level. Watch below, and tell us what you think!
