Subject: 	Jaques

I saw a rather lovely, streamlined, bare bones production of "As You 
Like It' last evening here on Cape Cod by a group from New Hampshire 
called 'Shakespeare in the Valley". It sent me to the script today to 
revisit it. Here's the question I pose. In the opening monologue, 
Orlando refers to his brother JAQUES who Oliver "keeps at school". . . 
just a coincidence that a JAQUES is with Duke Senior in the forest? Did 
Shakespeare simply run out of names? (he seems to certainly favor the 
name "Rosalind" in his writings).
