I like to look at it the other way round, retrieving the correct name for a key.

You don't give someone your name, you give them an 80-bit key fingerprint. It looks something like m-NN4H-JS7Y-OTRH-GIRN. The m- is common to all, it just says this is one of that sort of hash.

1.  And they run away screaming.

2. It only takes 2^50 trials to come up with a valid fingerprint that agrees with your fingerprint except at four non chosen places.
