For most of his life my grandfather thought his name was John Alfred Watkins. Turns out due to some bizarre olde timey thing, it was actually Alfred John Watkins.

I was watching Family Feud and two of the team members were identical twins, only they really didn't know which twin they were. At some time shortly after coming home, they outgrew their horsepillow wristbands and there may have been a mix-up right after mom cut them off and forgot which wristband went with which twin. Now that they are adults, it's prolly too late to tell them about infants being foot-printed in the delivery room - I would imagine those records may be long-gone.
Reminded me of "I'm izzick He's gizzick" from "The Inspector General"
