Nick North, or just North, which is not my real name. (Nick is my real first name). Anyway, I used to live in northern Michigan and moved to lower Michigan. My new friends started calling me Nick North to differentiate me from the other Nick in the group. I liked it much better than my real name, so when I moved again, and again, I told people that was my real name. Some of my friends have no idea that North isn't my last name. (I plan to change it to North permanently next year).
