Names in subject

This is probably better for a spamassassin list, but everyone here seems pretty knowledgeable, so I’ll ask.  We are getting a fair amount of spam that has the recipient’s name in parenthesis.  I’d like to create a rule that will address these.  I’m lousy with regex though, and I’m assuming I would need to have a rule that I just update with names as I notice them.  I thought it would be something like:

header NAME_IN_SUBJECT	Subject =~ /\(danita|james|joe\)/

I specifically only want the rule to act on those with the parentheses in the subject - I don’t think my rule is working.
