Apt names

Gleneagles' topic about nicknames prompted me to start a thread about people with names that fit their jobs.
For example:
Bill Medley - Singer
Kim Yoo Suk - Failed to reach the pole vault finales in the 2004 olympics
Can you think of any others?
Don't forget book titles:
Dog's Delight by Nora Bone
Rusty Bedsprings by I.P.Nightly
2000 miles on a horse by Major Bumsore
Obviously the books are not real titles... or are they  Undecided

Re: Apt names

One I used to enjoy seeing when driving near Guildford, on A3, was "Pick your own at Hurtmore Farm"
I suppose one could also hit a few balls here http://www.golfeurope.com/clubs/hurtmore/ ; Cool
