Nomenclature

There was a character on Frasier last night called, unless I misheard, 'Carol Dryden'.

My surname isn't that common, but it is steeped in history and mystery and stuff. Observe:
  • John Dryden, poet and translator of Virgil's Aeneid
  • Hugh Dryden, founder of NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center
  • John Dryden, founder of the city of Dryden, Ontario, Canada
  • Spencer Dryden, drummer with Jefferson Airplane
  • Granny Dryden, loveable claymation pal off of Postman Pat
Really, with a name like that, how could I fail to leave my mark on the universe?
