At a recent visit to a friend in the hospital, in the course of our conversation, I learned her doctor’s name was Dr. Fine. When I commented on the irony, she thought a minute, then related that the other doctor who saw her that day was named Dr. Wells. As if this coincidence wasn’t funny enough, we lost it when she said her surgeon’s name…Dr. Gross! As someone whose obsession with names is clearly beyond the scope of normal, that episode reminded me of my first day of business school. In our amphitheater style classroom, each student’s name tag was prominently displayed in front of them. Evidently, no one else seemed to notice three students with the particularly relevant last names of Stock, Bond and Price. Do you think people gravitate to professions that reflect their names? Or perhaps their names come from a lineage with a particular talent in that arena. Do you have a name story?
