There's one name that stands out in my mind, who goes by three names, the middle one beginning with W. I just want to make sure the Prof doesn't consider a middle name to be part of a last name. Ex: C. Estes Kefauver = last name K, not last name E.

I'm pretty sure Prof would have said "Middle name begins with W" if that were the case, but I have to ask these types of questions to Project Managers at work, each of whom have their own unique interpretations of reality. Plus, I'm still pissed Ireland = British Isles minus UK.

The W's not the middle name, it's the surname. Ireland isn't British (well, Northern Ireland is). Ask 'em.

Darwin, Faraday, Rutherford and Lister are about the only British scientists I know from roughly that era, and none of them is a "W."
