    Surnames that mirror a person's job

    Is it a coincidence that some woman have taken a partners surname that reflects their occupation. I first noticed this when the TV weather girl's surname was 'Blizzard'!

    When organising my dads funeral it was suggested we use the Rev Hazel Church to conduct the service - very apt!

    As my father is going to have a coroner's paper inquest I was contacted tonight by the Police Constable who is gathering evidence for the coroner as they need a statement from me and mum next week. Her name is Nina Crime.

    You couldn't make it up

    Have you come across any fitting surnames that are memorable.

    There is also the weather girl, Lucy Kite in my local area.

    If/when I get married, I'm uhming and aahing whether to change my surname as my name is pretty rare, even in Latvia. If I change it, it(as it stands) would be Conroy.

    My cousin's surname is Pratt - but he isn't. To this day his mum still uses her maiden name as she's in the public eye.

    My dads (and mine) surname was Gales and unfortunately he always suffered from really bad wind.

    Galeforce - I'd spin your name around and say your name is Gales because you're sweet like the honey maker.
