Every Tom, Dick and Harry a Jay-Z

IN STRUMPET City, when told that Tierney's Christian name is Rashers, a sergeant says: 'They never poured holy water on the likes of that!' Some of the names being given to children nowadays are ridiculous. Old, traditional names such as John, Mark, Thomas and Kathleen seem to be out of fashion, with people paying more attention to celebs and soaps than to saints. Back in the early Eighties, we had a lot of little John Pauls. Now maybe Francis will rise in popularity.
