What's in a name?

Radio Clásica were playing Vaughan Williams at breakfast this morning, Valiant for Truth sung by the Christ Church Cathedral Choir. I love sacred music on a weekend morning: it makes life seem more contemplative and more relaxed.

There was a teacher at my school whose parents called him Vaughan Williams, after the composer. He taught PE, and maths.
