Allen’s the guy who follows directions closely, flosses daily and becomes a gazillionaire before he’s 30 (something to do with an app he created). He’s nerdy cool and just fine with that. He and his cohorts (Alan, Alain, Alun) had been favorite boy names through the 1970s; since then, the name has only been used moderately. This respelling of the traditional Alan was the namesake of 1960s beat poet Allen Ginsberg and, with a slight modification, the real first name of director Woody Allen (born Allan Konigsberg).
