The most opposite one seems to be Lewisham West And East Dulwich, though you could argue that Northampton South and Northamptonshire South have a good stab at being contradictory.

Moving on to the MPs themselves...

Top 3 first names...

Andrew (14)
Sarah (14)
Chris (13)

The Jonathans - like Reform - have spread their representation too thinly across John/Jon/Jonathan so don't make the list.

Top 3 surnames...

Smith (8)
Jones (7)
Davies (6)

Sarah Jones and Sarah Smith feature on both lists.

Longest names...

Markus Campbell-Savours
Jenny Riddell-Carpenter

Name that sounds most like a constituency name...

Catherine West
