Little bit of trivia here- recently was re-reading Geoffery of 
Monmouth's _History of the Kings of Britain_. There's a long section 
on Arthur, of course, and just about died when I found that Arthur 
had a favorite spear... named 'Ron'. 'Ron'??? Not 'Ronald', just 
'Ron'. (Whiskey Tango Foxtrot!)
