Life as the other Earhart, Bieber and even Honest Abe

By coincidence or parental intention, people like Amelia Rose Earhart are forced to live with names that belong to figures they have never met but whom everybody knows. The blessing or burden of living with a famous name goes beyond the awkwardness of introducing oneself (“Yes, it is real,” “No, we’re not related”) and can affect the course of a day, an opportunity or, in Earhart’s case, a life.
