You think of names and ask people to think of names. When I first  
heard of this I though of someone who was a young lecturer when I was  
a student, Dr Robert May, then referred to as Bob May, now Lord May  
and former President of the Royal Society and former science adviser  
to the British Government. Seriously bright and a polymath and  
eligible because he is/was an Australian.
