    Years ago I read an incredibly witty and useful book called The Complete Guide to Wine Snobbery or something like that. The author's name was Leonard Bernstein. He observed that it was important not to make restaurant reservations in that name in New York even though it was indeed his name..

    I had a patient recently with the last name "General". He said he often got better service when out with his wife when he was in the service <many years ago> as his reservations were "General, xxxxx". He said his uniform clearly wasn't decked with "General" accoutrement but he didn't turn down the better service.

    I used to work with John Lennon and Bill Gates.

    We often had fun with the names.
