What's in a name?

Recommended Posts

If this is turning into the latest "silly names" thread, can I just point out that my great uncle was a publican and gloried in the name of Arthur Bitter?

And I'm named after an Australian tennis player (and would have had the same first name whether I was a girl or a boy).

 

Goolagong?

Reader's Digest had an article on a man born, brought up & educated in same places as Sir Isaac Newton -- finally married a girl with surnmae Newton.

No, cause his brother would have shared his first name rather than surname. :P

 

He did however have a second cousin who did a marvellous Tommy Steele impression; he was called Arthur Sixpence.

So was he the younger Brother of Arthur Crown?
