Ronal Serpas: From 'Prince' to 'Chief' 

  Police Chief Ronal Serpas has often had to spell — and occasionally explain — his first name, which looks and sounds like a misspelling of "Ronald." The chief's explanation: "The only thing I know is — if it's true — I was told that in 1939 when my father was born, my grandmother' favorite comic book was Prince Valiant. And there was a Prince Ronal, R-O-N-A-L. And supposedly she named him for that name. And then my dad named me that name with a different middle name. ... That's how my name came. And I get to argue with people every single day." — Clancy DuBos
