Ted was always very helpful and everyone thanked him for his assistance. He seemed to be everywhere he was needed. And yet he was called by two different names.

Ted=all hims and hes?

Ted=H? A? M?

Is the past tense here indicative that Ted is no longer alive?

Was Ted helpful as part of his job? Out of pure consideration? For some other reason? Is there a specific something that he assists with? Is his occupation relevant?

He seemed to be everywhere he was needed: was he actually everywhere he was needed?

Is it relevant what other name he was called by? Was there a specific person who called him by the other name? A specific group of people? Is his real name Ted?
Does Ted want to be called by two different names? Does it bother him? If so, does he try to correct the people who call him the name that bothers him?
Is there a specific place where he is called by a different name? Is this a case of mistaken identity?
Any crime relevant? Witness protection?
Any other specific people relevant? 1? 2? 3?....100?

Was "Ted" one of the 2 names that he was called by?
is any language other than english relevant?
Is Ted a translator?

Would a person working with Ted use one of the 2 names to greet Ted? thank Ted?

Would an individual use both names to address Ted? as in one name for one situation and the other for another siituation?

Are the people who call him Name1 aware of the people who call him Name2?
Do they need Ted's guidance to know which name to call Ted?

Do the people who call him Name1 and Name2 see him face-to-face? are they speaking to him with electronic assistance? text?

Is he a remote IT dude?

is this someone who has changed his name for the stage/television/movies/etc? so instead of his birthname, they call him his stage name?

actor? singer? dancer? news anchor? someone in front of the camera or behind the scences?

is the title "petite?" relevant? are you looking for a synonym for the word petite that is relevant to the name they call him? are any of the words "little" "small" or "big" relevant?

correct, perhaps the hint was a bit strong....oh well. Well done. Not many know that the 6'9" giant also played Thing. It is also not often known that he occasionally played Thing as a left hand to see if anyone would notice. Thanks for humoring me on this short one.
