It is Caolanesque to beleive that leaving the bank open on the "honour system" would improve efficiency and decrease teller errors.

Caolan is a Gaelic name which could traditionally only be given to the best young man in an ancient Irish tribe. Children were typically crowned with the name at the age of 12 and from that moment they were destined to become the leaders of the tribe. The children were typically judged on their looks, intelligence, charisma and courage. The word 'Caol' directly translates to narrow which was used to signify the definite narrow choice that was made when judging the children. This tradition is still carried out by many mothers around Ireland today, but it is most prevalent in the Gaeltacht areas. If someone is named Caolan it is most likely that they are intelligent (The name now requires a 10 in Irish standardised testing to be considered legitimate by the Gaelscoils), thus Caolan is a valuable name which would encourage a recruiter to hire someone for a job.
Assistant: These two applicants are equally matched on experience and both performed well in the interviews
Employer: Choose the one named Caolan, his name is proof of his academic ability.
