Is David Cameron any good at darts?
Is the darts player better at darts than his namesake was at politics?
Will he win the BDO world darts championship?
Will there be any pork scratchings left for anyone else?

Can anyone name any famous name doubles or trebles?

In 1945 Wolfgang Pauli won the Nobel Prize for Physics.

In 1989 Wolfgang Paul (without a final "i") shared the Nobel Prize for Physics.

Because in maths the letter "i" indicates "imaginary" numbers (involving the square root of -1), they used to joke that they were real and imaginary counterparts.

I think Cameron is out of the arrers now. Better luck next year.

I have known a few name doubles over the years. I wish there were more. It always makes me titter when I hear of any. There used to be a manager at work called Peter Shilton. Another called David Gower. Any time there names were mentioned, used to set me off.

TW, Yes David Cameron is out of the darts, so a failure just like his namesake.

I have an exact name double for me born on the same day and the same year, different county.

When we moved in 1970, our new next door neighbours had the same first names as the four of us, the surname was different.

As for looking up your own name, Google is your friend and also look for you website name.
