Gregory Peck dies aged 87, another Gregory struggles on, aged 31.

I was indirectly named after Gregory Peck. Mom and Dad agreed on the name because they both liked it (and they both thought he was good, too, but I wasn't named in honor of him in the way that you might name someone after a grandfather). The rejected first choice of my mother was "Ashley" (as in Wilkes, from Gone with the Wind). Ah, what might have been . . .
