Say my name

I know when people truly grow accustomed to my name when they make an introduction and say my name like it doesn’t need an explanation (which just happened).

Even I have to say,

“Zero. Like the number.
Yes, seriously.
No, I’m not kidding.
Yes, it’s the name I was born with.
Yes, it’s on my birth certificate.
No, you can’t see it.
Yes, it is an unusual name.
Yes, there is a story behind it.
No, it’s not because my parents didn’t think I would amount to anything.
And yes, it’s true, it is the dog’s name in a Nightmare before Christmas, and a character’s name in Holes and also The Grand Budapest Hotel.”
