How many letters in your first name?  That can determine how much money you may be making...hmmm "J.J." is just two letters, legally I'm "Jason."   The shorter your name the more bucks you may make....check out this survey:   By the way Linae was thrilled her husband's first name is "Wayne!"   Maybe a raise in the near future for Wayne, eh?
