  1. I learned this week that the actor Patrick Duffy was born on St Patrick’s Day. Since then I keep wondering if he would have been named something else if not for the date of his birth. If he’d arrived 48 hours later would he be Joseph Duffy for St Joseph?

  2. Good question! I wonder if his parents already had something picked out, but changed their minds when he arrived on the holiday.
