I worked at a school whose library systems staff followed this
protocol. While I liked the staff, I disliked the practice immensely. Yes,
I'm sure Joe or Don or Bill were probably wonderful people, but I knew none
of them, so the naming significance was lost on me.
If they really liked Joe/Don/Bill that much, then I'd suggest chipping in on
buying him one of those fund raising
a local charity.
