Disregarding spelling, you both are.  You have pretty much the right idea
about the meaning of the suffix {-Hom} (note that it doesn't have a {'} at
the beginning).  However, he trumps you in this case because it's his name,
and it can mean whatever he wants it to. :-)

[Actually, I'd probably use {-qoq} for the "wannabe" idea.]
