(2) A Name for a Nickname

from Fancyclopedia 2 ca. 1959
The surname given such Tuckerish pen-names as John W Pong jr, Horatio Alger Pong, Lord Ponge-Ponge [a bit of an oddball] usw, altho according to some who should know the first name rather'n the last is the family name among Chinese, so that if these characters are related to the famous Hoy Ping Pong they should all be Hoys. Hoy Ping Pong himself, "the Chinese Buck Rogers", originally had a personality all his own, but eventually just became a pename for Bob Tucker writing humorous articles.
