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?

well when i was in College there was a guy with a similar (gary) name, that joined the Society i was president of. Luckily he didn't show up to meetings or things might have got confusing.

Also Recently i was promoted from the Same Panel as someone with the same similar name, so far i have been on one training course with him (the trainer had the same first name as him, and the same family name of another course attendee) I will probably end up going on at least one more course this year with the guy who has the same name as myself!

Of course i do have one of the Common Family names, luckily the version of my name i have is not to Common In Ireland....

I actually have two different people in my address book whose first name is Paul and surname the same as yours. One is an Irish ambassador, the other a Sinn Fein activist in Derry!
