    That's the origin of the name but in modern Russian they're distinct words are they not?

    :lol:

    Hitler would be a pretty bad one, and perhaps in America, names like Booth and Harvey Oswald.

    In Georgia (the country) some girls have the first name Nazi but no connection to the Nazis. It would be really tough if they moved to a Western country.

    董 (Dǒng) is also a pretty common surname.

    I know someone whose father's surname is 何 (Hé), but her parents let her used her mother's surname instead so she wouldn't be teased at school (何 is also commonly transliterated as Ho).

    Sheila Dik****. That is very funny.:lol:
    Other than Mike Hunt, which I believe has been mentioned already, there is that old world war 1 vet named Harry Patch.

    Breivik.

    Do a search for "Anders Breivik" on Facebook. It's not only the guy behind the recent Oslo attack who carries that name.

    I've got a friend with a similar problem. Facebook won't let him go by his real surname, 'The'.

    Transformers 3 was 10 minutes longer due to this fact.

    I'm very tired of the fact that the surname "Wang" seems to be the only Chinese surname ever used in Hollywood.

    It's not even pronounced 'Wang' as in 'hang', anglicised.
    It's pronounced 'Wang' like a 'wan' from 'wand' and ending with a quick'-ng' from 'hung'
    'wan-ng'
