Sorry JimC ... once again I've crossed you in cyberspace!!

I guess either suggestion could be correct ... depending on common letters in other answers. ;O)

Oh!

I agree that known crossing letters would help sort it out.

Although, I didn't know that 'sop' can mean 'chap' (though 'SOP' is an abbreviation for 'Significant Other Person', who could be male). Or is 'Sop' a man's name also?

Agreed JimC, that's how Chambers describes SOP, but I found the following description on Encarta ....

sop ~ an offensive term that deliberately insults somebody, especially a man, regarded as lacking courage.
