Oh my god..

..Chewbacka is accurate - he's like a (slightly) shaven version!

I need a drink to calm my nerves.

Wow!!!

Take care ladies, don't get crushed in the stampede.

If that was the picture they chose, what the hell did they reject?

At least he is making the name change for himself and not forcing it on his offspring.

Misspelt name

He probably meant Chewbacca. He'll have to get a re-issued certificate now.

Chewbacca

He looks like Chewbacca after a shave. A very apt name, methinks!

It's funny how the picture exactly matches my mental image of what I thought he would look like.

So "Julius Andreas" isn't a masculinised version of everyone's favourite singing nun then?

Eep

I'd have thought looking like that would be enough of an incentive for women to stay away from him. Why add more obstacles, dude?

And

Who wants to bet that any domain name, email address, username, or anything else he wants to register as a unique identifier will already be taken, even with a name like that?

And I pity him if he meets a police officer who demands his full name - a night in the cells for taking the mick?

What about Wookie?

There is a techy guy in Cambridge who has the complete name of "Wookie" - he might even read this.

But he has the cheek to complain that websites insist on both given and family names being supplied and that he has to type in Wookie for both. - You chose the name you muppett!

Also the name is more than slightly ironic as he is of much less than average stature!

"And I pity him if he meets a police officer who demands his full name - a night in the cells for taking the mick?"

Reminds me of the chap I used to know who's given name was James Tarbuck (yes really). Got stopped by plod one night who asked his name, the inevitable response was: "Think you're a comedian do you?" The orifice did apologize once he'd seen Jim's license, but he always made a point of carrying with him because of these "amusing" encounters.

Makes you wonder why somebody would create such problems for themself. Does he really like to hear the phrase "Very good now stop pissing about and be serious" so much that he needs to hear it every day?
