Thanks for that, Caro. It was easy enough to think of the Christian name but finding an eco word for the surname proved tricky. Ectoplasm with the t replaced with a was one solution. However a glance at the dictionary which produced the French word Ecorche` meaning an anatomical figure seemed just perfect!
As Joe said this quiz is great fun and MikeH has given us all an intriguing challenge.
