Questionable benefit

The following was announced on the Intellectual Hooligan's train journey from Birmingham to Oxford:

'For the benefit of customers joining us at Leamington Spa, my name is Andrew.'

Well, Andrew, I'm sure the locomoting citizens of Leamington Spa will appreciate your parents' foresight (and altruism) in naming you thus.

Aforesaid citizens will be reaping the rewards, no doubt, in a manner which remains (as one who joined you, alas, at Birmingham – and to whom no benefit is therefore conveyed by your prenominal identity) a mystery to me.
