A local accounting office employs four men whose names are often confused becaused of their similar sound. Their first names (in no particular order) are Lon, Ron, Jon, and Don, and their last names (again, in no particular order) are Karley, Barley, Parley, and Harley.

Based on the information above, and the sole clue that follows, can you determine the matching first-and-last names for each of the four men? Good luck! [NOTE: This puzzle was revised after a typo was discovered early A.M.]

Only ONE man's first initial
comes AFTER his last initial alphabetically.

Here is the SOLUTION.


The four men are Ron Barley, Don Harley, Jon Karley, and Lon Parley.
