“The Missing Name” / Memorable Fancies #1547

What if someone were to take your name away – perhaps the government, as punishment for some petty crime.

At first you might think, oh well, I’ll survive as a John Doe. What’s in a name? Never liked my name anyway, an uncle my dad hoped would leave us some money but he never did. Better off without it.

But suddenly you wonder –

What are they doing with the name they stole from me? Where would they put it – or who might they sell it to? You know they’re always looking for new sources of revenue.

Yes, you discover, your name is online, up for sale.

Quickly you put in a bid.
