    Has anyone met someone with a famous name (or has) but isn't the person we all know?

    I have a few:-
    I have worked with a Mark Hughes and a David Platt
    I also whilst working in a hotel met someone called James Bond!
    My driving test examiner was called Steve Davis
    A friend of mine went to school with a Winston Churchill

    Any others people come across?

    At Tamar School in Plymouth, I sat next to someone called John Major, he liked The Stylistics.

    I took the car to our local Toyota dealer recently and met the Bodyshop Manager, Nick Childs!

    I have a friend called Michael Owen.

    My sister was at primary school with Michael Parkinson.

    Another friend has a nephew called Harry Potter. Born about the same time as the first book came out, his parents apparently said "its only a kids book, no-one will remember it in a couple of years!"

    Not famous, but I did work with a Michael Hunt.

    I couldn't keep a straight face when he told me to call him Mike.

    Used to work with a lad called Stephen King and then ended up playing in the same darts team with another mate, funnily enough, called Steven King..... Scary isn't it ?

    Well, my first name and middle name spells out the Portsmouth Football player, David James (the keeper), but not my surname!

    A friend's son-in-law is called Gordon Brown.
    My brother-in-law is Ian Jones - not the ex All Blacks rugby forward though!
    A former client went by the name of Colin Montgomery (slightly different spelling I suppose)
    A current colleague down south (I work for a large plc) is Emlyn Hughes - "junior" in fact, being the son of the late Liverpool skipper.

    A past Baritone player at Kippax married Richard Burton.

    The band was also conducted for a while by Russell Grey. (Not THE Russell Grey)
    He was talented but not renowned.
    Does that count ?
