The name "Lambert" seems to be the source of some strange coincidences in my life. Here are some anecdotal evidence:

- It is the name of the German mathematician, physicist and astronomer Johann Heinrich Lambert. I am a mathematician by day and an amateur astronomer by night. The name of my favorite composer (Bach) is Johann. My name (Ioannis) is Johann in German.
- In 1979 my favorite movie Alien came out. One of the passengers was named Lambert, played by Veronica Cartwright.
- The original design of the alien creature was by Hans Ruedi Giger, who I am big fan of.
- I am a big fan of the Highlander movies and series, where the actor Christopher Lambert plays the immortal Highlander.
- I am also a big fan of the Matrix films, where Lambert
Wilson plays the Merovingian.

My father owned a VW beetle, whose left door was destroyed in a car accident in 1971. The door was subsequently changed in 1972 and along with that, the car keys. The new car key, (which I still have in my possession) has on it imprinted something which resembles the image of the Complex unit circle, under the map ö(z)=e ^{z/ez}, the inverse of which involves Lambert's W Function. This is the area of the Complex plane inside which the infinite exponential tower^{+∞}z converges.- In 1998, I had a strange lucid dream after dosing off watching the Greek National TV channel, "ERT", where someone in my dream yelled at me very loudly: "KEVESH". After asking one of my Hebrew acquaintances about this word, (because it sounded Hebrew to me to begin with), I was informed that one possible interpretation in English is "Lamb" (as in "sheep"). "Lamb"+"ERT"=Lambert.
- Having high cholesterol, I've been taking Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium) tablets, which are produced by Pfizer Pharmaceutical. Pfizer was previously known as Warner-Lambert.
- In emission spectroscopy which is one of my hobbies, I often stumbled along the Beer-Lambert Law which involves the log function (although admittedly in base 10). The natural log function is intimately tied with Lambert's W function.
- In lighting engineering and optics, which are some of my other hobbies, I often stumbled along the Lambert's Cosine Law.
- In 1999 I was hired by the University of Crete to investigate applications of Maple in Analysis. There I encountered Lambert's W Function
- In 2000 I set forth to investigate various ideas on Infinite Exponentials, and the results of this investigation which are presented in the Mathematics section, involve again Lambert's W Function
