Tube People Quiz

What's in a name?

A two part quiz this Friday.

1. Name ONE of the people below - three points for being the first person to guess one of names correctly, one point if you give the same correct guess as someone else (so get in quickly to get those points - and don't be a swat and give more than one name - you know what happens!)

Name this London Underground characters

2. Give names of up to two stations on the Tube map that has a person's first name in it - eg Royal Albert. The station name can be longer than the person's name - eg Debden. Popular abbrievations of names can be used - eg Deb in Debden. You can also use anagrams of the staton name - eg Dawn is part of Kew Gardens. You get a point for each name (please don't give more than two) and a bonus point for not giving the same name as someone else.

To enter leave your email address and/or blog/website with your answers in the comments below. Please leave all your answers in one entry and you can only enter once! You have until 23.59 GMT, Sunday 16th July to make your guesses.

The people with the most points will go into Neil's paperclip selection.

And the prize for the lucky selectee - it has to be a copy of "What's in a Name?" - a fab little book which give the origins of the name to every London Underground Station. which explains the origins of every London Underground Tube & DLR station name. It's also got other information including the year the station opened, and the name changes that have since occurred. Plus black and white photos of many of the stations or their immediate surroundings.

Good Luck!
