    I didn't know Ajax was a proper name... still, it's unusual, even if it has traditional origins.
    Ohh I didn't know it was in a show!! I picked it because I actually wanted Max (my girls are M names) but DH said no, then my DD1 said Jax and I loved it :-) people do assume its his nickname though, but whatever :-)

    Maybe they have Duke as the middle name but then write it and use it as the preferred name on forms?
    Both my dad and my stepdad NEVER go by their first names and have always been called their middle name (freaky coincidence or does my mum have a "type" )....seems odd but thats just the way they have always had it.

    What about Earl? Surely that's allowed, despite being a title...

    My father was telling me about another man who nearly got into trouble with police because they thought he was being a smart alec when he answered their questions correctly.

    "What's your name?" "Murray Glenn"
    "Where are you from?" "Glen Murray"

    I once knew of a John Lennon. He had to lie about his name when ordering pizzas etc, because otherwise they hung up on him!
