What's In A Name...

As an anonymous commenter pointed out on my last post, you can see my real name in that newspaper article. Yes, you can read it in the online version, too.
You can hear it in the interview I had over at Radio Free Nation, and read it on their site. My name is out there; my name is Meris.
It's not a big deal though, in all honesty. The blog isn't about Meris, it's about Sam. To most of you all, I am Sam; and at certain points in my life, I am Sam to myself. Naming the main character "Sam" wasn't really out of anonymity, but rather because of a promise I made to my friend Anni (I mention this promise in the radio interview, by the way).
I suppose you all are free to address me by my real name (you're free to do basically anything you want, after all), but I'd love it if you keep calling me Sam; it makes me smile every time I hear it!
Thank you to the commenter who was kind enough to consider my privacy--much obliged!

Sam, next time I need a foxy, gun-totin', EMT who likes cool things in a story, I'll name her Sam (not like my manly commercial), and I'll let you know, so you can enjoy it!

You're welcome! I just wanted to make sure you weren't unintentionally using your given name. Out of curiosity, do you like Sam better than your real life name?

I like Sam better for the purposes of the story, if that makes sense. I love my given name, but I think Sam fits for the occasion, if you will.

Um. Why did you decide to post this particular post? It is okay. We all know you as Sam...a chick name Sam is excellent. Though, you should come up with another nickname...just for the sake of cruising around on the Internet...like I did. You have to consider your personal security. Baby-girl,
just always be careful of what you post. We all know you as Sam here...that is all that you should ever say...Meris is your given name...yes...so? Never give it a bigger priority or attention than it deems necessary or appropriate.

Of course, I really do not know what I just said...oh well.
