Sloppy, Sloppy

My International Law book says that the main Allied diplomats at the Treaty of Versailles were Woodrow Wilson, Georges Clemenceau, and "Lloyd George." This is wrong, or at least disrespectful. The man's name was David Lloyd George, with Lloyd George being his last name. It's like Vincent Van Gogh or Manfred von Richtofen. The last two words are the last name.

Of course, what do you expect when the author is Van Dervort?

UPDATE: Oops! My bad, the author is Thomas Van Dervort. Sorry, I must not have been paying attention...
