Another unique Test first name

Following Mark Davis' burble about unique first names, according to TMS Aaron is a first. Aaron Redmond has managed to avoid a pair for New Zealand, but from an England point of view we could do with getting him out tonight....

I'm intrigued about his father, Rodney Redmond, who only played one Test despite scoring 107 and 56 - recorded for posterity is the wagonwheel from his century versus Pakistan in 1973. According to Cricinfo he couldn't get used to wearing contact lenses and retired! Surely he could have gone back to wearing a traditional pair of glasses if the contact lenses didn't work for him? Rodney Redmond clearly didn't go to Specsavers!
