  wordfunph: from Sarah Hurst's Curse of Kirsan..

<In around 1961 Keene discovered Clapham Common Open Air Chess Club, near where he lived. "There was a young guy there, about 15 or 16 years old, he said 'Do you want a game?', I said 'Fine,' and I beat him with extraordinary ease. He seemed a bit surprise." Keene was younger than his opponent. "But anyway, we played a whole series of games, I won them all very easily, and he said, 'Do you know who I am?', and I said, 'I've absolutely no idea who you are', and he said, 'My name is Alan Whitbread and I'm the London Under-16 champion.'">

May-19-13  Xeroxx: Whitbread: metonymic occupational name for a baker or seller of white bread, from Old English hwit 'white' or hw?te 'wheat' + bread 'bread'. White bread, considered the best bread, was made from wheat flour. In some cases, perhaps a translation of the German cognate Weisbrot.
