Or do what people in a "small naming pool" have done for centuries, and give them nicknames that *become* their names... My wife's family is full of "Big Sandy" and "Red Sandy" and "Small Alex", etc (Alexander was a popular name in that branch of the munros...).

It is by my order and for the good of the state that the bearer of this has done what he has done.
