Lance Knapp. What a blah name.
When I was born I was Lance Welchel. I was the son of a Lance Corporal in the Marine Corps, who vowed that his first son would be named Lance. I was his first and only, so I got the prize. Then bad things happened and he left the picture, and my dad (Mr. Knapp) came into the story and adopted my sister and I, and I became the person I am today.
But then I was left with Lance frikkin’ Knapp as a name, and it’s been underwhelming ever since.
I have a similar story Knapp. My bio-dad left when I was 2 and my brother was 1. I was adopted when I was 7 when my mom remarried.
I've known three Lances in my life and they've all been large men. One I went to school with was easily 230 and well over 6 feet. My current buddy, though I haven't hung out with him in probably over a year, is pushing 400. Note to prospective parents; if you want a big kid, name him Lance.
Only two Lance's I knew of before Knapp was Lance Armstrong and a guy I went to school with who was like 180, 5'10"
It may not be as scientific an assessment as there has been, but I'm confident that if I have another kid I'm naming him Lance because my kid and I were both small. I want a kid that can beat up my buddies once in a while for me.
