    One of our clients is called Philip Kinnell. He inisists on being called Phil.

    Another time I worked for a Swiss gentleman called Peter Nuss. He always signed code changes as P Nuss.

    Michell Buble
    Ralph Fiennes

    A long time ago I used to work with a chap called Andrew Ridgely and you could hear him on the phone when he was getting quotes for his car insurance inevitably you'd hear "no, not that one"- every call
