"Head Bubba" is a rather, um, improbable name. What's his real name?

Okay, I think the mystery is solved.

That, or he's a somewhat tentative Elvis impersonator. (Where are the sequins?)

Actually, it appears they really are the same guy!

If Credit Suisse is seriously affected by the global credit crunch, I imagine Bubba's executives will be coming to his basement to drink up all of that Jack Daniel's.

As far as I can tell, Bubba is his real surname, and 'Head', while
probably pseudonymous (it's often given in quotes), is preferred enough
that he's referred to as "Head" Bubba in Credit Suisse public documents.

I almost hope his name is pseudonymous: it'd be evidence that you don't
need to abandon pseudonyms even when you climb to senior positions :)

(One question remains unanswered: who is Shem Multinymous? Now there's a
name that just *screams* 'pseudonym'... :) )

This was just brought to my attention. My legal name is Head Bubba. There is no mystery. I have the court order for my legal name change. Names don't matter, what matters is what you can do.
