Hi! The Brits on the list, and other BBC World Service addicts like me, might recall a BBC journalist called Ivan Noble who died of brain cancer earlier this year. He kept a diary of his condition for as long as he could ... excellent, interesting, and of course horrifying. In it he often mentioned his wife and children, though not by name.

Now the book of the articles has appeared, called Like A Hole In The Head, and his wife has gone public with her views etc. There has never been any suggestion that she is anything other than British, though the UK is admittedly a melting pot. And her given name is Almut. Any ideas? I'm drawn to Helmut, of course, but why and how anyone would change it like that is beyond me!

But not much is beyond the combined cyberwisdom of this list ...
