Richard Branson nearly nicked my name

From the Times obituary of Nik Powell, lifelong pal of Branson and co-founder of Virgin Records:

Looking for a new name to sell their mail order records to a broader audience “Slipped Disc” was briefly favoured until one of the staff pointed out that they were ‘all complete virgins at business’.

Phew… that was close!

    “Nicked” your name long before you started using it, perhaps ?
