What’s in a name?

By Brian | March 1, 2010 | Share on Facebook

This just in: Bernie Madoff’s daughter-in-law, Stephanie Madoff, has asked the New York Supreme Court for permission to change her last name, and the last name of her two sons, from “Madoff” to “Morgan,” citing security concerns amidst death threats received by the Madoff family.

So, just to review: Bernie Madoff’s family wants/needs to change their name, but Osama bin Laden’s wife and son are fine co-authoring a book using their given name.

It’s a strange world, folks. I wonder which family engenders more anger these days…

    Just remember the old show-biz maxim: What have you done lately?

    Madoff’s crimes are fresher in the mind than Osama’s.

    Not to mention Mrs. bin Laden is counting on her infamous last name to sell her book, whereas Stephanie Madoff would probably like to return to anonymity…

    Agreed – but there must have been a time when Mrs. bin Laden was getting death threats, no?

    Put another way: if the court grants her request, Stephanie Morgan may regret (or reverse) her decision when it’s time to promote her book…
