McGee wants to change his name
In one episode of Fibber McGee & Molly, he gets irritated that no one will believe him (imagine that!), and thinks it is because of his name. He reveals that he was supposed to have been named after a cousin Walpole J. Fimmer, but the minister that performed the christening ceremony had a cold and mispronounced the name as Fibber. McGee begins searching for a new name and goes through several possibilities - Chauncey, Cyril, Archibald, Pierpont, Willoughby, Marmaduke, Parmalee and Upton - but finally settles on Ronald.
