Did you know Syd's original name was Roger?

I think most people know that, or at least if they've read anything about him, they do. Just like Roger's first name is actually George.

RE: Who is Syd? This is all you need to see:
Roger didn't change his name, he just chooses to go by his middle name. Lots of people do that. A good friend of mine is named Elizabeth Marie, but chooses to go by Marie because she doesn't like her first name. It's not that unusual.

As for why Syd chose to go by Syd rather than Roger, he took his name from a local Cambridge musician named Sid Barrett, but chose to change the spelling to differentiate between the two.

No, no it doesn't. Besides, he changed his name when he was 14, and while I'm sure he experimented with something at that point, it wasn't why he chose to do it.

Highly unlikely. I've heard everything from schizophrenia to autism, but not clairvoyance.
