It is amazing just how far those family names spread. My thankfully ex SIL, who had many nasty habits also had an infuriating one, in that she repeated every thing you said to her, as a question. It got old very quickly and the family started to call her 'the parrot'. This was behind her back. She, however, insisted that we call her Miss May as it was her name (which it was not), and threw a tantrum at her wedding when the license was issued with her proper name.
A couple of years ago post divorce when cell phones became popular, our car was fitted with a hands free kit, made by Parrot. It would say, 'do you want to call such and such number?' You can probably guess it was soon christened Miss May. People asked questions on its efficacy and we soon forgot to call it Parrot and called it Miss May instead. Shortly before Christmas I was invited to speak at a conference in a sector I have no connection with way at the other end of the other Island.. I overheard someone talking about going to ring someone from her car, as Miss May improved the reception. I asked her why she called it that, and she told me she wasn't sure but lots of people knew called their car kit that.
Miss May is of course not her real name, but she did preface it with Miss.
