Today I’m grateful for my unusual name. I don’t really think about my own name that much, but when I do I realise it’s pretty unusual — I’ve only met a couple of other Stewarts and Stuarts over the years. It peaked in popularity in the 1960s and has been falling ever since. The only downside is the confusion in spelling my name, though some of the misspellings are pretty entertaining. Some people just hedge their bets with Stuwart.
