the name Fortune
Fact : my name is Fortune. Why I have no idea. I never knew my mom. But according to Google I am the only person in the U.S. With that name as a surname. I was born04/26/1952, and as long as I have been alive there hasn't been another fortune in this country. Anybody else have any facts regarding my name?
