Tom, Bob, and another Bob

I don’t know why, but every single pilot we have has a very common name.  When you look at the crew list you never see a pilot with a name longer than five letters, never.  There’s Bob, Dave, Gary, Pete, Steve, Bob, John, Don, Bob, Dan, Tim, Tom, Chuck, Dick, Bill, Bob, Will, Ken, Ted, and of course, Joe.  You never meet Captain Julian or Sebastian or Frederick.  Both our Captain and First Officer are Bobs.
