Question: English & Literature

Why does Evan have his name legally changed?

Phillips is a private detective who is not very bright and not very good at his job. He is spotted by Marlowe as he tails him and asks for Marlowe's help, but is killed before Marlowe can meet with him. Phillips became involved in the case when he was hired by Vannier to try to sell the counterfeit doubloon to Elisha Morningstar. Before his death he sent the counterfeit coin anonymously to Marlowe.

In his first teaching job, Evan — who was then called Eric — had a relationship with a student in which he got the girl pregnant. He had his name legally changed from Eric to Evan because he wanted to distance himself from what he believed was a one-time mistake.
