Meet Constable Lawless! Sounds like we've made his name up but we kid you not.

Constable LawlessJonathan Foyle found out about him when he travelled to Co. Down for The One Show. Constable Lawless kept law and order in Watertown, where miners lodged while they built The Silent Valley reservoir.

Constable Lawless' name got Adrian and Christine thinking, whether anyone else out there has a name that matches their job.

For instance Bill Medley from The Righteous Brothers...get it? Music, singing, medley? You can't deny he has a name that matched his career!

Apparently, a name aptly suited to its owner is called an aptronym and we'd love to hear from you if you have one or know of one.

Perhaps you're a postman called Terry Stamp or an electrician called Richard Sparks?

Tell us the names that match their jobs here.
