What's in my name? ― Day 20 of NaPoWriMo 2015
Hunter is my name
My name is hunter, had it a long time
American name, meaning is hunter
A look at my soul edge, it's number eight
I'm not sure it fits but with it I'm stuck
To lead, organize, supervise, they fit
Status, power and wealth, not necessary
Expression number five fits me all ways
Change, adventure and excitement, my game
I've lived forty-seven changed places
And been to fifty states, scores of countries
Adventures, well, ... rode a horse to high school
A hundred and sixty miles per hour,
Audubon was screaming for joy that day
Jumped the falls in Hawaii. Does that count?
Hate the rules and norms of society
"Sign says" brings to mind time to argue it
Do this and don't do that, 'take off my shoes'
Put them on, wear a shirt. Not when I'm told
"Tie and jacket required" open shirt
Tie's alright here in my pocket. Have it
"No Parking Here" hang my blue sign and walk
"Keep off the Grass" means a shortcut for me
I'll know your age and where you were born
Before we part, though I'll forget your name
Energetic, intelligent I am
I've turned down Mensa folk for when I'm old
Restless, Untidy, that's my other name
Known for disheveled office, wasted space
Wash my cars in slowing rain, soon enough
Boxes and sacks are where I keep my things
Hunter's my name, it is, but only when
I might be called or paged, otherwise it's
Jim. Hunter I chose, name that fits me well

1. My real name is Jim, aka James and others. But anytime someone who has not need to know asks for my name I tell him/her that it is "Hunter". I adapted Hunter because I like the character, Hunter, so well on the old Hunter TV series that ran from 1984 to 1991. IMP says, "Rick Hunter is a renegade cop who breaks the rules and takes justice into his own hands." I even have a Hunter tie and shirt, as similar as I could get by shopping. www.imdb.com/title/tt0086734/
2. To the best of my remembering, I have most of those things I mentioned and a lot more. These came to mind for me to show that I fit the name. Friends are surprised when my order is called and I get up to answer the Hunter call.
3. A search for the name, Hunter found this for me:
