      'As far as I'm concerned, he's Benjamin Rigby,' said Kit, after the first time we met him. 'He seems like a decent baby and he deserves a decent name. Not that his father's got one, so I suppose I shouldn't be surprised.' Kit thinks it's only acceptable to 'go around calling yourself Anton', as he puts it, if you're Spanish, Mexican or Colombian, or if you're a hairdresser or a professional ice-skater.
