ThatsMyNameNotMyJob Photo The census system in olden times often recorded a person's given name, and then their profession or possibly their homesite. Over time, Bob, the baker, or Bill, who lives on the hill, became Bob Baker or Bill Hill. England is full of families bearing job or place names as their surnames. This quiz is simply a look at ten people, real or fictional, with names of the aforementioned type.
