I just met my freshman writing students for the first time and discovered that three of them are named Kyle.
"Were they having a clearance sale on the name the year you were born?" I asked, but they were not amused.
The advantage, of course, is that with three-fifths of the men in the class sharing the same name, I'll have a pretty good chance of getting it right--or at least getting the first name right. But how will I learn which Kyle is which?
Maybe I can talk to of them into volunteering to switch. I don't have any Harolds in the class, and we can always use a Maurice.
