An aptonym is a name aptly suited to its owner. The term refers to people whose names suggest key attributes of their jobs, professions or lives.
The Herald has found lots of these people in our area. They are vital members of the community, as well as being good sports. So for the third summer in a row, we are profiling our local aptonyms.
To see more of our aptly named folk, go to our photo gallery or take a look at the stories.
