A friend of mine bears the given names Ronald Joseph, according to his
birth certificate.  His baptismal certificate, however, reads Joseph
Ronald (there being no St. Ronalds, the priest refused to baptize in
that name).  As a result of this fundamental dichotomy, he has a
random collection of identifying documents in both name-orders.

To make things worse, family and friends have always called him Tap.
