The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

You could call it product placement

This chap in Tulsa is willing to change his name if the price is right.

John Cox is hoping some corporation will kick in $75k or more for him to change his first name legally — although he'd rather it wasn't Fannie Mae.

And, well, you have to figure no private individual is likely to fork over that much money to stick him with a name like "Enormous" or "Turgid," either.

"Anna Marie" -- wait, that's already taken...

I don't know. I think I would double the price if it was "Betty Crocker."
