Some people's names (such as "Will Power") suggest a certain personality or career choice. Given below are some last names and professions (in no particular order). For each last name, your task is to think of a common first name, such that it suggests one of the given professions. Each last name and profession must be used just once.
Example: Sonny Day would suggest a meteorologist.

Last Names: Ball, King, Major, Mee, Soares, Turner
Professions: Paleontologist, Author, Musician, Plumber, Astrologer, Lawyer

The hint provides the first names.

Gave up too soon and went for the hint. The hint made it easy, but it was a doozy. Great teaser.

Got only the author on my own; then the hints of course gave it all away, but it was fun.

Very clever and not too easy. I only got two and then had to look at the hint. I liked this one.

Like most was able to get Paige Turner without the hint, the others were easy knowing the first names.
A great teaser as usual Marc
