I think it made things a lot simpler in terms of travel and contracts and it was a very easy process to go through, costing 50 old pence. We were also pretty keen to do something different as we were all about metamorphosis at that age. I think our parents were upset but were probably quite numb towards the level of offence we’d managed to instil by that time. They were pretty keen to get their lives back and move to the West country. Once that distance had been established they could settle into their lives and find a better capacity to understand what their kids chose to go through, despite it being so different from their generation. Middle names are rather superfluous. David and I ditched those as well.
