The Why Of UK Pub Names, Fascinating

It started with me looking up the why some British pubs are called The Cross Keys:
Cross Keys: The sign of St Peter, the gatekeeper of Heaven. Often found near a church dedicated to St Peter. When people walked to the Sunday service they often stayed afterwards, at a house near the church, to drink beer and to watch or participate in sporting events.
I then spent the next hour quietly exclaiming, "Hah, well there ya go", or, "Really, that's so cool" as I read the whole Wikipedia: Pub names page
