There's a Saint Piaton (which proves nothing, since there were lots
of people named Simon--Shim`on, I think--before anyone was in a
position to be a Catholic saint).

There seems to be some confusion, by the way, over whether people
are using "alien" to mean "not born on Urth though possibly human"
or "not human".  Or maybe just "foreign to the Commonwealth", like
Loyal to the Group of Seventeen, and presumably Ash.
