I know of two others with my real name: one is a librarian and one is the wife of an ex Finnish politician. There are probably a bunch of others that I don't know of. Luckily no other writers/authors with this same name.

For some reason many Americans seem to think that there is only one person in the world named Maija (which is in fact a common name in Finland), and assume I'm a painter who shares the same first name. For the past ten years I've regularly got emails about "my" paintings. It was pretty confusing at first. Yeah, I am a painter too, but I didn't think I'm all that famous. :-P

hermes @ wikipedia

"As a translator, Hermes is a messenger from the gods to humans"
"an escort for the dead to help them find their way to the afterlife"
"the Olympian god of boundaries and of the travelers who cross them"
"a bringer of dreams, a watcher by night, a thief at the gates, one who was soon to show forth wonderful deeds among the deathless gods"

sorry but I really liked that character :).. I chose that handle ~5 years ago .. my 4th handle in a 20 (d'oh!) year scene "career" now..

"hermes" also was a character in the "futurama" series (the notorious rastafarian accountant).

Forgot about the real name homonyms, well there's at least a professor and a conservator who show up before me in Google search results.

for a few years, www.jco.de belonged to the "Jesus Christus Oase", wich was some kind of christian community that registered the domain a few months before i got myself jco-music.de. Sadly, they want 1000 EUR for it now that it is for sale (i asked them about a year ago). Seems that nobody wants it, so maybe it's time to ask again :D

jco, 1000€ for a 3 letters domain is a bargain

Several people come and ask me if my nickname comes from optimus prime. But it's not. I just thought one day that I am obsessed with optimised software and optimizing code in general and made up Optimus which sounded good. At that time I wasn't aware that Optimus is also the name of a transformer robot.

Though it's a very common nickname and when I try to sign in for a new email account, forum or blog, it's already taken and so I use either optimus6128 or optimus_dm on the irc.

Also, I remember a french demo that was once released from a new group (in 2001-2003?) and one person who contributed something (gfx, sound, code, I don't remember?) had the nickname Optimus. But this was their only demo I think and I never heard of that optimus scene guy again..
