    I was sitting today in a meeting, bored out of my gourd, and started breaking down my name in groups of the letters to see what airports codes make up my name.

    Yes, weird, but I was bored.

    In my case it was Denver (DEN), Simberi, Papua New Guinea(NIS) and last name started with Gloucester Airport (GLO) .....I'll save the rest of my name for security purposes....

    Even including a middle initial to get an even 12 characters, there is as yet no KLA on which I can end.:(

    I must assume my family name is a misprint and that I belong in the Koru Lounge at AKL :)

    ELI ZAB ETH make up my first name. ZAB doesn't correspond to an airport, but it does match up with an Air Route Traffic Control Center. So this route would take me from Elim, Alaska to Eilat, Israel via Albuquerque, NM.

    Sadly, no JEF airport. Also no dice with my last name or initials. Guess I need to change my name.

    Jefferson City, Missouri. I looked because my last name begins with JEF.

    DAN is Danville, West Virginia.

    Thanks. I was using ITA matrix and it doesn't recognize JEF. I guess it doesn't know everything.

    With that knowledge, I can now use Jefferson City, Missouri (JEF) and Fera Island, Solomon Islands (FRE). If I use my middle initial before starting with the last name, I can continue with Arctic Bay, NU, Canada (YAB) and Roswell Industrial, NM (ROW). Since the number of letters in my name is not evenly divisible by three, I will then take an N as my free letter, finishing up with Espiritu Santo Pekoa, Vanuatu (SON).

    That will give me an overall result of JEFfreY A BrowNson.

    Looks like I have a couple of vacations to plan. I can't let airports spell my name without taking the time to visit them. That would just be rude.

    My name is hard--

    CHA; Chatanooga
    RLE: Airline code for the now grounded Rico Linhas Aereas
    S

    My initials are conveniently one of the most popular airports around-- CDG.

    If I do my first name and middle and last initial, I can do:

    CHA-RLE-SDG (Sanandaj).
