What is the backstory of your name? 

“My mom always wanted to name her son, Atticus after Harper Lee’s famous novel, To Kill A Mockingbird. When she met my father, they were stuck between Atticus or Huckleberry. I’m pretty glad they landed where they did. “

How do you feel about your name?

It’s always a pretty good conversation starter.”

What’s the funniest story about your name? 

“I don’t have any funny story in particular, but pretty much anytime anyone leaves a message for me, gives me an official document (i.e. drivers license, diploma, degree, etc.), it always, without fail, has Atticus Finch written on it.”
