    There's an Australian politician named Richard Face; commonly called Dick.

    Where I work there's a girl named "Yue Dai"; pronounced "You Die".

    Heh. There's a former casket factory in Vienna that's now being used as a location for concerts. (Well, it was several years ago, anyway. Haven't been there lately.) It seemed like a selling point - of course, few people (as a group) are more morbid than us Viennese.
