I've got a theory...

...about a harmless fanon trend, though no particular explanation for why this trend seems to exist, if it really does. My theory/observation is that when Spike is given a birth-surname in fic, there seem to be quite a lot of names beginning with a particular letter. I have no idea if this is just in m/m slash, which I read most often (or maybe even just in Spike/Xander!), or cross-genre. No idea if I'm even correct that there is a trend -- this is just an informal poll to see what we see.

Indulge my curiosity:

If you have ever given Spike a last name in your fic -- a birth last name that is, one that would've been William's* -- please to comment here with it/them? And share whether it was an m/m fic, an m/f fic, or a gen/non-Spike-ship fic? (RPG counts as well.)

(*Judges will also accept "a name that Spike uses in modern times and never says in the text whether that was William's original name, but you meant it to be")
