I saw an electrician's van the other day with "Simon Borg" on the side- I think I'd quite like to be Si Borg grin

Slightly different but my late great grandma was called Alice Cooper and didn't get all the references to 'some musician', she would most likely have been horrified to share her name with the glam rocker!

I had a teacher at school called Wendy House.
She was a Miss, so didn't have the excuse of it being a married name.
