If you were a bartender, would you use your real name with customers? Or would you maybe use a ‘cool’ nickname like…
He wasn’t 13 years old, which seems more appropriate to me for such a nickname (and perception of what is cool).
No, he was a 13-year old who grew up to be a middle-aged man who thinks a Stars Wars character nickname is still cool at his age.
Of course, he might have named himself after former University of Kentucky basketball great Kenny “Sky” Walker…but I doubt it.
Now, that would be cool.
