Writer's Block: Where Names Come From

Is there a story behind your real name or avatar? How did you end up being called that?
Yeah. Back when I was born, my dad was going to name me after his favorite football player, Walter Payton. However, it wasn't going to be Walter. I was going to be named Sweetness. My mom said "Hell no!" and had my dad pick something else, in which he responded, "Why not Josh? I was just joshin'." My middle name came from an old friend of my mom's by the name of Bernard Wayne Taylor. My last name came from my mom.
