What's in a name?

Today my boss set me to look up a Seton Hall professor.

I looked about for Maxine Laurie and came up blank at the Seton Hall site, so I was a little stumped. Time for Google. It came down to two people, one here and one in Western Australia. Well, of course. In fact, her name was Maxine N Lurie, professor of history, editor of the Encyclopedia of New Jersey, a published author and historian.

Then, curious, I scrolled down and checked out Maxine Laurie.

You couldn't possibly make this up.
