I'm not a big fan of this nesting w/ When, but if it used a verb of
some sort I might like it -

When "creating a new person with no name" do
 Exec "creating a new person named", nil
 Do "creating a new person named", nil
 Run "creating a new person named", nil
 Invoke "creating a new person named", nil
 Call "creating a new person named", nil

Not sure about any of those, but you get the idea.

That seems the better choice to me.
