    There is a character in a Science-Fiction novel published about 10 years ago that was named for me...the author named her after me (I was thrilled to give permission!) using my middle name and my surname.
     
  9. what happened to the ch? did you feel the name needed shortening? [​IMG]
     
  10. I left it off ...deliberately to inflame Welsh speakers. :¬))

    plus I've had a fair few bottles of bishops finger and the keyboard keeps moving.

    A song by Scott Walker, though I was actually named for the song rather than the other way round.xx

  15. Surely you were named after it rather than it being named after you.

    I could claim that the Macedonian King who conquered most of the (then ) known world was named after me....but that would make me 2400 years old and very important.

    Not sure I'd want to be called 'The Cockfighter' but it takes all sorts I suppose ;-)

    Bauble: I said TWO Welsh villages. There's only one LlanfairPG.
