From the 1920s until shortly before he died, Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot had a butler in his employ by the name of George. Apparently we never learned what his surname was... in BookWorld. But since the Toobworld Dynamic is only concerned with the televersion of George, I'd like to suggest that his last name was Wynant.

Taking it a step further, I'm going to claim that George Wynant was the brother of C.H. Wynant, father of "She Who Must Be Obeyed", Hilda Rumpole.

Tele-Genetics are very strong and entire DNA sequences can repeat several times down through any family's lineage. (This was firmly established in the 'Simon And Simon' episode "The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From The Tree".)  This is why Nicholas Rumpole, son of Horace and Hilda, looks so much like a younger version of his Great Uncle George.
