‘Celebrating’ Namesake Day

Jonathan thinks the real Jonathan Bishop should stand up

According to my best friend, Mark Beech, whose politics I in no way endorse, today is Namesake Day as part of Celebrate Your Name Week, so I thought I’d join in.

There are a number of other Jonathan Bishops in the world, perhaps too many for my liking, but I thought I’d list them here anyway in the good spirit of the event.

The Reverend Jonathan Bishop, a minister in the Twitterverse, who follows in the footsteps of Vivian Parkinson, who was probably the first minister in the world to blog, using my Llantrisant Online website.

Jonathan Bishop, from Design Interactions at the Royal College of Arts, who is interested in the merging of fiction and reality, and in how the everyday can become more wonderful.

Jon Bishop, an Internet Marketing Specialist at Magicomm. He concentrates on understanding and developing web 2.0 technologies and applications. Clearly he doesn’t have the practical experience of me, who invented the Circle of Friends social networking technology, so will the real Jonathan Bishop please stand up.

Jonathan Bishop, the Co-Owner/Co-CEO of Bishop’s Orchards. Clearly experienced in a different sort of Apple exploitation to me. I wonder if he will follow me and migrate from Apples to something more fruitful!

Jonathan Bishop, the Deputy Headteacher at Broadclyst Primary School. Clearly wishes he had invented Classroom 2.0 first!

Jonathan Bishop, Chief Deputy Director, State Water Resources Control Board California.

John Bishop, a Liverpool stand-up comedian. Apparently he will be performing at the Glee club in Cardiff. He can’t be any worse than any other the other acts I’ve seen there.

Johnathan Bishop, a Network Administrator in the Information Services department of the National Food Service Management Institute.

The late Jonathan Bishop, Professor Emeritus, who helped initiate Cornell University’s first-year writing seminars.

Jonathan Edward Bishop, a digital artist.

John Peale Bishop, an author, poet, and editor, born in 1892 in Charles Town, West Virginia.

Dr Jonathan E. Bishop MD, a clinical Associate Professor at Snohomish Family Medical Center.
