The Name Game

When I was a Cambridge undergraduate, I was in the same yeargroup and at the same college as this guy. Mind you, in the year below us at Clare there were two Andrew Smiths.

Samuel Pepys finds himself in a slightly more extreme situation, having dinner with no less than four Richard Brownes, three of whom were knighted and thus Sir Richard Browne.

Tell me, does this ever happen to you?

A certain university managed to pay my redundancy money to another person with the same name as me who had worked as a postdoc in a completely different department for a year, and had been gone for a couple of years before I left the staff.
