Troy Keeps it Real

So Troy "He of Alternating Vowels" Polamalu legally changed his name from some other vowel-heavy arrangement to Polamalu - the name already on official documents like his drivers license and Social Security Card.

Polamalu has many meanings and translations. According to an interview a year ago today (spooky!):

Troy Polamalu was asked what his last name means. "I could tell you it means long-haired warrior," he said. "But that wouldn't be true."

I suspect it means, "Shrouded in Hairy Secrecy." But when I put it into the Shannon Sharpe Translator, it means, Pull My Leg

"Troy, well he Pol-a-ma-lu. Flabba"
