    Default Names and Villages

    Every district seems to have a person 'named' after them -


    ADVERTISING




    Edge Hill - The Mole of Edge Hill

    Hale - The Childe of Hale

    Knotty Ash - The Squire of Knotty Ash

    What other districts and names do you know?

    Aren't I right in saying that Liverpool FC defender Tommy Smith got the nickname "Anfield Iron" probably following the Scaffold's hit "Thank U Very Much" which had the reference to "Aintree Iron"?
