I recently met a young Kenyan with the last name of Otieno. I know another Kenyan, Mike Otieno, so asked if they were by any chance related. He laughed; Otieno means born at night so that represents probably half the country. So no, he does not know Mike. I said I find your last name thing rather confusing.

Then he said we find your last names confusing as well. George Washington, Denzel Washington, Washington, DC, Washington State. What is the connection?

 I had to admit, I don't have a clue.
