David Cohen used X as a middle name to join the TV writer's guild, but mostly the reason for using X was meant to make his name sound more science fictiony for Futurama.  However, now that Futurama is cancelled, will he go back to David S. Cohen? or use something like David F. Cohen?

He didn't legally change his name to David X. Cohen, it was just for the Writer's Guild.

So should he get the X out?

I'd say keep the X.

Unless he's leaving the TV writer's guide, I doubt he'll be going back to S.  And having changed his middle initial once, I don't see that there'd be any point in him changing it again.

No I say, the X is great and will show in future productions his geeky sci-fi-ness for all to see.

he should definatly keep the X,  it'd probably be awkward for him to change it again now he is registered anyway, and all the people who havent previously heard of him could remember him because they were wondering what it could stand for

The X is unique sounding and just his trademark by now really.  Plus who's to say he won't work on other science fiction related material?

I agree with DoTheBartman, we're just so used to hearing his name with the X, so why not keep it? Even if he doesn't work on another sci-fi show, the X is just a motif.

I  assume that David S. Cohen is still a part of the Writer's Guild, no real reason for DXC to change it.

It's like the case of J. Elvis Weinstein, his given name was Josh Weinstein, but problem is there was already a Josh Weinstein in the Writer's Guild so the other Josh changed it to J. Elvis.

If he keeps it, he can never deny that he helped make Futurama, a proud statement at the least.  He helped it, he can't unhelp it.

You people are all fools! Of course he should get rid of the X... and replace it with PI!  just imagine, David <pi> Cohen. You'll have to imagine, as I canna type the proper symbol.  Imagine the prestige, imagine the power, imagine the explaining to people and banks and employers... it would be awesome.

Naw, keep the X

X is cool. It's used in so many cool words, movie titles, and so on. Such as X-Men, X-treme, X-clamation, Xellent, and other cool stuff. Besides the X is like a transition from David to Cohen. David Cohen just doesn't sound right.

keep the "X"
it makes him unique, who else has a middle name that starts with X?
plus if he did anything else (dont know if he does) and didn't use David X Cohen, a lot of people wouldn't know he's the same guy from Futurama. So I say keep it... it makes him David X Cohen of Futurama. Besides, anyone who produces with Matt Groaning seems to throw in a middel initial... like James L. Brooks of the Simpsons.

When you do things right, people wont be sure you've done anything at all.

I think he should drop the David and Cohen, and just go by the name X. Now THAT would be cool.
