Is it simon laurent or francis simon?

Just a bit of nonsense to soften the mood of gloom at the moment or something to think about during the day, whilst waiting for news of loan signings.
i was mildly rebuked by Shrimpero on Tuesday evening for using both the names Francis and Laurent to describe Francis Laurent. This understandably led to a bit of confusion and set me thinking if there has been a prior situation when we have had players whose first names and surnames could be interchanged? At the same time, I wondered whether we have ever had so many players in a Southend side whose surname could also be a first name. I can list the following:-

FRANCIS
GRANT
CHRISTOPHE
LAURENT
SPENCER
JOYCE (what's she doing there?)

less evident

PATERSON Joseph (Brit actor)
MOUSSA Sissoko (footballer)
MALONE Sechan (son of Renaud Sechan)
FREEDMAN Porter (fashion brand perhaps that's stretching it a bit!)

Here's another ...:)... it was Saturday. Laurent wasn't playing Tuesday!
 
Oh god that's worrying!:O Not sure whether it's politer to take pity on me and ignore it ..................but there again, I'm sure someone else would have pointed it out. In my defense, I suppose all these games are becoming so depressingly similar, it's difficult to differentiate between them. Anyway, all that considered my deliberate error doesn't detract from the spirit of the thread.
