    Reminds me a litle of the Cosmogenesis paper where George Gamow insisted on adding Hans Bethe's name to the paper written by him (Gamow) and his graduate student, Ralph Alpher - just so it would read Alpher, Bethe, Gamow (like apha, beta, gamma ) :biggrin:

    How about this for a good name change... :rofl:

    After being charged £20 for a £10 overdraft, 30 year old Michael Howard of Leeds changed his name by deed poll to “Yorkshire Bank Plc are Fascist B@st@rds”. The Bank asked him to close his account, and Mr B@st@rds asked them to repay the 69p balance by cheque, made out in his new name.
