my name, as an oath

A person whose name sounds nothing like mine emailed me today with this question: "My mother, long gone, would sometimes call people, including me, her son, 'Peter Levine' in what seemed to me whimsical fashion. Now, decades later, and curious about what she meant by that, I typed in the words at Google and found no reference to such a person in literature or history that might fit. Since your name came up at the head of the list, I thought I would write and ask if you could shed any light on who she may have been referring to. My mother was born in 1901 in Arkansas, had a seventh grade education, and was not well read. I suspect she picked up the expression through conversation or story telling."

This just goes to show you—you never can tell why someone will visit your website.
