I like your line of reasoning, brucie. But do think of changing your membername or at least capitalizing the "B", because it makes you sound like a whiny, sniveling little Lord Fauntleroy type in a blue blazer.
Of course, there isn't a lot one can do with the name Bruce, is there? Unless one is a Scot. Robert the Bruce had real presence. If you have another given name, I suggest using it first, as in "William the Bruce".
But if you should visit England, for God's sake don't call yourself "Willie"! Ha! Ha! Ha!
