Are you named after someone famous?
James Corden named his son after Paul McCartney. As he explained in an interview with USA Today: "I was trying to get Paul to do a charity sketch and I said to him, 'If you'll do this, I will name my unborn child after you.' And he said, 'Deal. I'll do it.' So when my son, Max, was born, we called him Max McCartney Corden, and I sent Paul a picture of the birth certificate saying, 'I'm good for my word.' Paul just thought it was insane and ridiculous, and a week later, this beautiful blanket arrived that was embroidered, 'To Max, from one McCartney to another. Love, Your Uncle Paul.' It really tells you everything you need to know about the man. It was quite wonderful."
