    The trolling with names has been amusing. There's a story a read somewhere with a huge list.
    I was intrigued so switched over to it yesterday. Managed about 10 mins before I had to switch it off. It's a shame because Neil was one of the few decent political presenters.

    Back on track.

    I know someone who's surname is Falconer. I suggested they call their daughter Millennium, or Millie for short. Didn't go down well.

    I once knew a Native American chap who had a very unusual name. When I asked him how he got it, he explained that in his tribe boys are always named after the first thing that the father sees after he leaves the wigwam for the first time after the birth. For example, his own father was called Running Horse because his old man had seen a horse running past when left the tent, while his Grandfather was named Grey Cloud because his Pa had looked up... etc etc. "So," he said rather wearily, "that's why I'm called Two Dogs F**ing"

    De’Ath is a relatively common surname, but the Reading keeper was actually Steve Death. Sadly, he did die at a very young age.

    Death, sans apostrophe, was a middle name of Lord Peter Wimsey. He uses it as part of an alias in ‘Murder Must Advertise’.
