Name dominoes

A recent xkcd strip introduced the game of name dominoes (see also large version of image).

I’m a little surprised to see that I haven’t posted before about making chains of names; I’ve been doing it now and then for a long time. But usually I only get linear chains of three or four names before I run into an unusual name and give up. xkcd adds a whole new dimension.

I have posted before about movie-title chains; see column C (and its reader comments page), and column M, and column TTT. But I don’t seem to have posted about chains of people’s names.

PS: I’m disappointed to see that after over two months of posting here every day, I missed yesterday, and almost missed today. Alas!
