Slow News Day: What's Your Name Mean?

Since we're had two, count 'em two threads about Syd Barrett being dead, I think it's time for a "What does you name mean?"  

I've always been curious about names like Pantsman, Walrus Man and Kenshin.  Is Cleophus named after the reverand that James Brown played in "The Blues Brothers".  If your name is just a name, like Irwin or Daniel or Grant, tell us whether that's your real name.

I'll start.  "Goofus" is inspired by "Goofus and Gallant", in "Children'e Highlights" magazine that you used to read in your pediatrician's office.  Gallant always was the good kid and Goofus was always getting in trouble.  (Plus the name sounds kind of goofy.)
