The Unfortunate Name...

...of the Day coincides this morning with my first ever Bad Advice of the Day Award.

Joan Sebastian (yep, you read that right), above, a Mexican singer and songwriter, died at age 64.

Mr. Sebastian was born José Manuel Figueroa. According to his obit in the Times:

Mr. Sebastian’s Facebook page says that he changed his name to Juan Sebastian in 1977, and that he turned the “u” in “Juan” into an “o” on the advice of his sister, a numerologist.

At least Johnny Cash's character didn't deliberately choose a girl's name.
