Was his christian name BOB wink

Bank managers - they seem to be collectors items these days

My father visited his quite often I recall in the old days - he approved of his sherry.

Bob is very good - I've been struggling to make a joke out of Mark.

How the other half live! I've never been given sherry by a Bank Manager. Had a letter from one once, 'please do not anticipate your credit...'

There is a lady on Twitter, a freelance journalist, who rejoices in the name of Ms Hedges-Stocks - alas, she has yet to join the financial pages.

As a teenager opening my first bank account in the 70's I was interviewed by the local branch manager of Barclays to see if I was worthy of their services... When the manager asked me why I'd chosen to bank with them, I confidently replied

"Because may father barks at Banklays!" doh!

Three of my fellow apprentices were named Pope, Mercy and Heaven.

Back to the financial topic, my son's former music teacher is called Tanner.

I remember seeing on "That,s life" there was an Estate Agent named Robin Bastard.

I,m not joking, even Ester laughed at it.

I often wondered how he stayed in business with a name like that, but perhaps people regarded him as an "Honest" man ? As far as I remember, he was very sucessful, so, what,s in a name ?

Don't know if you had them in the UK but in Australia we also had the Threepence, Florin and Crown. The Threepence (or Thrippenny) was of course 3 pence, the Florin was 2 shillings (24 pence) and the Crown was 5 shillings. I always though the Florin sounded French.

I am a little surprised that Miss Moneypenney hasn’t got a look-in … but I suppose that goes with the characterisation.
