One of my 3 siblings (the only girl) and 1 of my wife's 2 sisters
married men named David.  The statistical likelihood that of 4
marriageable women in two connected families 3 would marry men named
David must be tiny.  But it happened.  With far more names to choose
from, and over a much shorter period of time, than Henry VIII's Toms.
