“The Man Who Lost His Name” / Memorable Fancies #692

[“I met a man who lost his name.” – Miroslav Holub]

     No, he hadn’t forgotten his name, and yes, he did have a name once upon a time; he told us so. He actually remembered what his name had been: an impressive name, highly revered, indicating descent from several rulers who’d been brave once, or perhaps just lucky.
      But then he’d fallen into “a run of bad luck” he said, although we all knew it had to do with drinking and gambling. Deeply in debt, and with a valuable name that spread honor like a blanket, he’d sold it.
      We can’t call him by his original name, now; there would be trademark problems, and numberless nameless lawyers are watching.
