What part of speech are you???

Okay, I'm kind of pissed. My brothers have first names that are also parts of speech. The oldest one's name is also a noun and a verb. The next one's name is a noun, a verb and an adjective. I got nothin'.

What about you? I'm not asking for you to tell us your name, but how many parts of speech are you?

noun, proper noun and compound word for my last name.
also, part of a television show for my first name, so does that make it a proper noun?

I'd rather be a dangling participle.

First name is nothing. Well, Besides being a Proper Noun.

Until recently, My last name wasn't even in a dictionary. Then it became a Noun and Adjective. Isn't that special...

Despite having perhaps the most common male first name, it is only a proper noun. And my last name, forget about it.
