The internet salesman wrote my name on his form.
"ALAIN - Alain, it's that, yes?"
"No, Alan - A L A N."
He scrubbed out the I.
"A second forename?"
So it is that for the purposes of our telephonic communications now I am called M. Alain-Thomas d'Avey.
I think it's easier to change my name than to change the system.
