Mine is pretty simple also. It's not a nickname.... it's actually my name. Well, more specifically, my middle name. I was born and raised in s a small town in Southwest Michigan. My mother gave me that name because she frequented a club where the original Temptations band played long before they were famous. Two of the gentlemen who played instruments in the band had last names "Geran" and "Vaughn". She wanted to give me a name that would be distinctive, and decided that putting those two names together fit the bill. Geranvaughn didn't look right or flow well off the tongue, so with a bit of her own "poetic license", she decided on Vaughgeran (pronounced as you would the two names apart: VON-jer-ON, or VON-je-RON.
