Could someone help me understand this unusual habit I've got? I frequently say arbitrary names out of the blue. Most often, the name I say at this time is "Roger", with many variations. I sometimes say it by itself, and sometimes with various last names. Sometimes it's "Roger Douglas", sometimes "Roger Neri", sometimes "Roger Johnson", "Roger Norma", and what have you.
I'll just be going about my affairs, and out of the blue, I'll say "Roger Douglas" or whatever. It's not always Roger, but most of the time it is. Sometimes I call out other names, too.
The funny thing is, I really don't know anybody named Roger, and certainly no Rogers with the last names I use with it. However, in some cases I do know people with those names. I've been doing this since at least 1994. I've gone through spells at times where I used other names. "Roger" is the current one I'm using when I do this.
I do not necessarily find this to be troublesome, but I do believe it is bizarre. I do not think I have full control over this habit.
Can someone please give me some insight on this. Thanks.
