Whenever we hear the name of two people having the same surname, we undoubtedly suppose them to be related by birth or something like that. It creates more confusion in our heads when the two-person(of the same surname) have the same taste of talent and follow the same career(hmmm…).We unknowingly make guesses like “maybe they are a couple, or maybe they belong to the same family or maybe they are relatives” and things like that.
The same thing might have happened in our heads when we heard the names; Alexander Wang and Vera Wang (one of the celebrated personalities in the fashion industry) for the first time. Many of us might have speculated that they share a mom and son relationship, right? I did too…
But Nah, they are not related like not even a percent of what we thought them to be. Just as common in other people, Alexander Wang and Vera Wan just happen to share the same last name and talent.
