What’s in a name?

A funny coincidence.Talking to my cousin Simon in Milan, he tells me they have received an excited phone call from a relative in the USA who has spotted the book. The coincidence is that my aunt by marriage is also called Violette Shamash, and, as is normal the firstborn son in both families is named after the grandfather – so much confusion reigns. It was my mother, Violette Shamash, who introduced aunt Violette to uncle Haron Shamash (my late Father’s brother) – thus making two Violettes marrying two Shamashes. My brother and my cousin are also both called Simon Shamash. Confused? — Mira
