    Then of course there's the cohort of 50's Afro Caribbean immigrants to
    Britain, who all seem to have the names of British Prime Ministers
    (Winston etc.) - I don't know where those came from (whether it was a
    Carribean thing, or whether they just grabbed names for their kids once
    over here, and drew on the token bit of colonial history someone had
    taught them).
