The current Chief Constable of the Metropolitan Police in London is called Cressida Dick.

 

 

 

It's also interesting how names are geographic, especially christian names.

Also, some names don't travel well between countries/languages.

 

Looking at an ancestor family tree I see a Kuntz.

Years ago I was often amused by the signwriting on a van - "J. S. Pipe - Plumber"

 

I later learnt that he had a son named Dwayne.

My mum told me that when she worked for ASB, there was some manager called Charles Dick (I think it was Charles). Anyway, his wife's name was Gay.

I heard of someone who was called Ben Down. Apparently he had two brothers, Bob and Neal. Don't know how much of that, if any, to believe, but makes a good story.
