What is in Flynn's name?

Q: Daniel Flynn of New Zealand made his Test Debut on May 15. What is the significance (since the days of C.B.Fry)?

A: Flynn probably has the longest name with no vowels (beat Fry?).

Flynn is not first one with 5 consecutive consonants in the name. Notable ones with 5 consonants include: WW aRMSTRong, STRYDom, CoNYNGHam, LiLLYWHite, etc. The ODIs have seen DaLRYMPLe (6!) and Eric SzwaRCZYNSKi (7!!)

Of course, I should Ask Steven this! Ah, that reminds me that Wisden has SYCLD Berry and Steven LYNCH ...
