Has anyone else picked out the symmetry in the names Batman and Batgirl as they related to their alter egos? If you flip the W in Bruce Wayne to an M, you have the first letters for the words Bat and Man. if you Take Barbara Gordon's initials you have the first letters in the words Bat and Girl as well. 
Dick Grayson doesn't work, Neither does any of the other Robins real names, which why I believe Robin was a massive mistake and should be ignored entirely, no matter who puts on the tights. :)

Sooo... Assuming his name WERE Richard Head....  (No, I absolutely don't see the inuendo there... LOL!)  His initials would be R H... So, going back to the symmetry thing... Should his hero name be Robin Hood? or perhaps the Red Hood?  Oh wait, no that's taken... um?

So does that mean we should ignore Superman, Spiderman,Hulk,Captain America, Martian Manhunter, Wonder Woman and every incarnation of the Flash and Green Lantern(except Guy Gardner)

I agree..... 
 
Characters should not be created unless their first and last names are the initials to their hero alter ego's....... 
 
No matter how cool, respected, or essential they are to a story....... 
 
CK? Bye bye Superman...... 
 
BA,WW? See you later Flash........ 
 
AC? I guess we can let you slide Aquaman..... Your initials are close enough....... 
 
JJ? Martian Manhunter, you have to go.........
