    Hey, quick question... I would like to ask opinions about my name:

    Trevis Overocker

    Yes, that is my last name, seriously. What do you think? I get comments at my job all the time. Everyone says it's a perfect name for a guitar store guy/musician. What do you think?

    well its spelling could be seen as:

    ove-rocker
    or over-ocker

    obviously they could be pronounced very differently.

    you only have one R so its not over-rocker...though you pronounce it as such in present times, do you know your lineage? or the backround surrounding the name?
