Living down to her name

Ms Dynamite, a singer, has been charged with assaulting a police officer who was questioning her after an incident in which she allegedly kicked the door of a night-club. But Dynamite is not, alas, her real name: she is Naomi McLean-Daley, which doesn’t have the same ring to it. I am reminded of Sam Goldwyn who, while enthusing about America’s nuclear weapons, was heard to exclaim: “That Hydrogen bomb — it’s dynamite!”
