    Well it was a supprise to me but according to S3 and their TeraMatch system, my name would flag up on the US feds computers as being a possible terroist!

    Bit of a shock for me but then apparently
    "Killip" (my sirname) sounds like...

    # KHALEEFA
    # KHALIFAH
    # KULAYEV
    :wallbash:
    not sure if thats right tho, and also my first name flags up but i was expecting it

    Tony sounds like...
    # THAN
    # TIN
    # TOM
    # TOMMY
    # TONIA

    are you safe to fly? :sigh:

    And Alexander. Though remember this is just screening, not an explicit no-fly list as such. They presumably combine this with a whole load of other parameters before they check you out...

    Johnny is banned,so i assume if that was true there would be no one flying to the US.I highly doubt that you cant fly becouse of your name.

    Id not be surprised if almost all names trigger a 'watchable' flag, and oh wait that would mean the US would be 'legitimatly' tracking travel for 90% of the worlds inhabitants due to possibly terror risk, oh wait that would never happen lol

    "Harvey" is banned, utterly red-flagged. Possibly because it's a name derived from the french word "Hervé". They don't like the french much, do they?

    George comes up with
    # GARCIA
    # GEARGES
    # GEORGE
    # GEORGES
    # GORKA

    Bushn returns
    # BACCUS
    # BAIG
    # BAYIK
    # BEACH
    # BOCK
    # BOESE
    # BOJKU
    # BOSCH
    # BUCK
    # BUSIC

    So in theory once Dubya is out of office he'll be flagged up - then again we know he's a convicted criminal so he should be flagged up anyway.
