I am sure that this exist not only in Sweden, athlets or other celebs wich names sound kind of funny in your own Language. As for example; Timo Boll (Boll is the swedish word for ball), Brad Pitt (Pitt is the Swedish word for the male genitale) or my personal favourite, a skii runner from east of europe named Korunka wich in swedish would translate to Cowmasturbate! Hey, great name, atleast he will be remebered! Any of you guys have simillar names that comes to your mind?

Hao Shuai sounds like "very handsome" in Mandarin, everyone seems to take a crack at it in his exhibitions; bet he got ribbed a lot as a kid.

Wasn't there a great composer for Louis XIV (Le roi du soleil) that was called "lulli"? ...which sounds like "little p****s" in Dutch!

Also Wang liqin and Wang hao....'wang' means Cheek in Dutch

Another famous soccer star player from Argentina named Messi but he is not messy at all; especially inside the penalty box.  In fact, he is a great scorer.
