People with names appropriate for their professions
I just love when people's names somehow reflect their work like:

James K. Toner, the Laboratory Head of Kodak's Imaging Science Resources Lab

John Flicker, President of Audubon

Know of others, besides the usual doctors/dentists?

14. Charles Beverage - a bartender
Ann Broom - a housekeeper.

Actually, I used to keep a list of people I knew with such names. Alas, don't know what I did with it (and my memory isn't in gear).

18. San Francisco had
(maybe still has?) a Police Detective named Napoleon Hendrix.

Not really appropriate to the job, but it's a way-cool detective name.

20. Dr. Hatchet, a surgeon in Oklahoma.
A friend needed an emergency appendectomy and called her husband from the ER crying. She said, "I have to go into surgery now, and my doctor's name is Hatchet!"

BTW, Dr. Hatchet is a kind, skilled and respected.
