What's In a Name?

One of the minor joys of reading lots of cases is you see lots of interesting names, especially aliases, but one today from a Fourth Circuit case really takes the cake. The case is Smith v. Ozmint, but the plaintiff has a more interesting handle:

Kevin Smith,* a South Carolina prisoner, appeals the district
court’s award of summary judgment . . .
*We refer to Smith as his name appears in the case caption even though he now prefers and uses the name Bar-None Royal Blackness.
I wonder if he shares a cell with Raymond Luxury Yacht?
