I always loved the name Emerson Fittipaldi too! Funny, there are a lot of race car drivers(NASCAR and various open wheel cars) that have great names.
I worn for a global corporation. One of our projects was partially being built in Taiwan. We came to learn that our contacts over there gave themselves "American" names. So we dealt with a "Demi" and even better, a "Vulcan", lol!
I know someone who had a student with first name Monkedich. He was reading the roster & said he came v. close to saying it "monkey dick". The correct way to say it, apparently, is "Mon kay desh", which I actually think sounds very pretty.
I have heard similar stories about Sh'tead (correct: shuh-tay-id, which I also think sounds nice). not sure if they are apocryphal.
I knew a Hunter Farmer. I love alliterative names: Paula Peeples, etc.
