    Sensitive about this

    I doubt that your parrents actually named you Your Name Here.
    They did, actually. 'Your' is an ancient and almost honourable surname
    dating back to a remote and little known clan (band of thieves, in fact)
    that, for reasons lost in obscurity, always presents the surname first,
    as do the Chinese.
    Possibly my parrents yielded to a moment of whimsy in then choosing
    'Name' as a first name although 'Here' may be traced back to a long
    lived ancestor - it was more a nick-name, really.
    Its difficult to be categoric about these things. I knew a chap named
    Stan Moore. Fair enough, except when his first and (presumably) much
    loved son was born they (there was also a woman involved) named him Hugh
    Moore. I kid you not, and neither did they - as far as I could tell they
    had no sense of humour at all.
    Thanks for the info about 360 degrees, to you and all contributors.
    Fascinating stuff.
