Gabriel Rush Walker Reyes ought to provide enough reason not to use the services of these people.  Walker Reyes is bad enough by itself with one name beginning with W and the other with R, but then they are joined by differing R sounds.  On top of that now, two more Rs are added to the mix in Gabriel and Rush.  Try saying Gabriel Rush Walker Reyes three times.
