I knew Frank and Frances from a community where their
neighbors were Reggie and Regina, Don and Donna, Jack and
Jackie--recall my family arguing over whether a new addition
named Beverly Dale was a boy or a girl (girl was right).
Who knows people with memorably appropriate names, like
Mary Christmas, Minnie Moore, or my favorite Math Maddox?

I knew a Les Moore once.

I'm sure he heard a lot of "Les is Moore" jokes.

I know a Darren Luck. He's in sales. I suggested he use the motto "Luck is on your side" on his business cards.

He thought it was beneath his dignity.

I told him to put it beneath his name.

As luck would have it, Luck would have nothing to do with it.

Dear Grapho: I once got my face slapped when a gal I was
romancing dreamily said: "We'll call our first son Mike".
I told her the romance was over. She looked puzzled, and
asked why. I said: "Say it fast several times." Ten second
delay and I got belted.

I used to know a Teresa Green and a guy called Colin Nicol who told me the anagram name was traditional in his family.

Oh, and Mr Virgin and Mr Angel lived next door to each other, which was a really strange coincidence. Both those family names derive from actors who played those roles in the old morality plays. Neither name was appropriate in the least as it happened.

wwh's surname

I think wwh is pulling his punch(lines), Bingley.

Which is all to his credit.
