Sometimes you can't improve on these.

So, big hat tip to Bloomberg:

Morgan Stanley just left Morgan Stanley. No, really.
The fixed-income trader, who just happens to share a name with the 82-year-old Wall Street firm, has left the bank, a person with knowledge of the matter said. Stanley joined in 2012 after graduating from Boston College, according to records from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.

We don't know why Morgan Stanley is leaving Morgan Stanley but it's fun to type, and we assume that he will never once regret missing out on people art work learning his name and saying "Wait, bro, really?" We also think he should reconsider any urge to legally change his name to "Credit Suisse."

But we are now wondering why Greg Fleming hasn't yet changed his name to "Colm Kelleher."
