Nominative determinism

I've just finished a contract at NIWA (National Institute for Water and Atmosphere Research) and was amused to note among the scientists there a Dr Clearwater whose area is aquatic chemistry and ecotoxity, and a Weatherhead who works in river ecosystems (pity it wasn't climate.)

My GP at uni was a Dr Gash who was a very nice and sympathetic man; lucky he didn't go into surgery. Oh, and while we're on medicine, there's a Dr Tongue in this city who's a gynaecologist.
