Was it a misconceived attempt to make him look "Bollywood" ? In fact, there semed to be a theme of referencing at least some of the celebs' real jobs.

I just hope that wardrobe are over it now.

A very selective quote there. Read the rest of my post.

Anyway the Caithnesian/Orcadian Ola is derived from Norse, not Polish, and is a complete name not a short version of another.
