[ # ] It is not Lin, it is Lin-Manuel
January 30th, 2020 under Lin-Manuel Miranda

If you look at Lin-Manuel Miranda’s name, then you would think it is OK just to call him Lin. Right? Well, his father, Luis, would like you to know that is wrong.

The wordsmith and his dad were interviewed by Variety and the interviewer wanted to know if they had any nicknames for each other. That is when his father revealed the origin of his son’s name. Back when the senior Miranda was an adolescent, he knew if he ever had a son that was going to be his name. Therefore, he told the interviewer, “You all call him Lin, it’s not very flattering. We even put the hyphen so people would call him Lin-Manuel, it’s an entire name”

If you ever meet Lin-Manuel, make sure to call him Lin-Manuel. It will make his daddy happy, and that is all that matters.
