Letter: A name by custom

Sir: Please thank Helen Birch for her kind letter ('Dear Victoria Strachan', 13 September). No, I am not related to Gordon Strachan, though I am grateful to him for ensuring that my surname is now normally pronounced correctly. He seems, however, to have been unable to get my first name so well established. Just for the record, it isn't Victoria.

Yours sincerely,

VALERIE STRACHAN

Chairman

H M Customs and Excise

London, SE1

13 September
