PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Max Pauson now has something just about everyone else has - a name.
When he was born 20 years ago, his mother never got around to officially giving him a first or middle name.
The former foster child's birth certificate just read "Baby, Boy, Pauson."
The generic birth certificate became a problem when he tried to get a job.
So, last year a Los Angeles judge approved his new legal name: Maximus Julius Pauson.
Now, he's trying to make another name for himself - as an artist and writer.
He's a student at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Calif.
And his work is currently on display in a show of artwork by current and former foster care children.
