Jughead On My Mind

For the past couple of Saturday mornings, I've wasted a half hour watching The Archie Show on the Retro Televison Network (RTV), and two things have stuck in my mind. 
The first is that insipid theme song.  ("Archie's here.  Betty's here; Veronica, too.  Reggie's here.  Hey, Jughead, where are you?")  I can't get the stupid thing out of my head.  
The other is this question:  Is "Forsythe" really so embarrassing a name that someone would actually prefer to be called "Jughead"?
At least he's got it better than the guy in that Johnny Cash song.
