What's in a name

We have a service guy who comes in, about once a month, to do work on our water treatment systems. His last name is Wankum. Every time I see one of his reports, I have to chuckle to myself. I wonder if his name describes his favorite pastime.

Which than raises the question, I know some names derived, over the years from a person's profession. Smith, Cobbler, and Baker were all based on the job you did. So, does that mean, this guys ancestors raised wanking to a new level? Were they highly skilled in the art of wanking? Is this still a profession today? Can anybody apply for that job? And, does it take special schooling? Do you get an MB degree for advanced studies? (That's a MasterBator degree.)

Ok, I'll stop thinking about how cute Mr. Wankum is, and what he does when no one is around.
