Unusual first names

The biblical pair Daniel (Vettori) and Jacob (Oram) got me thinking about names and I certainly can't think of any other Test players with those first names. That of course led me on to the England side and I bet there has never been a Dimitri or an Owais in a Test or International side before. Then you looked at the whole England side and I reckon that of those who played in the recent win I could only remember name-twins for four - James (Anderson), Philip (Mustard), Kevin (Pietersen) and Paul (Collingwood) - I can think of no other Alastairs, Ians, Lukes or Ryans.

Jesse has got to be unique too.

Who have I forgotten ?
