Interesting. Papa Doc and Baby Doc Duvalier were Haitian dictators. Bloodthirsty killers.
Yeah, but these guys were all stand up citizens, Just a fitting way to quickly identify which doctor slaughter you were refering to. Although the blood thirsty might fit, almost all the surgery preformed in that county for about 30 or 40 years was done by one of them.

Half a lifetime ago I actually met a man named Richard Head.

He had a daughter who married a man named Chin. So she became Chin (k)nee Head. True story.

Another one I just remembered. A bloke whom I used to work with is named Aaron Elvis. His surname is not Presley but the same as a well known Aussie drag racer (car, not cross dressing) so he is universally called Victor.

Almost forgot this. When my dad went to get a passport in the 70's he had to get an "ORIGINAL" copy of his birth certificate from the "OFFICIAL" state records. When it arrived from Ohio, it didn't have the name he'd lived all his life with, joined the navy, college, teaching credentials, etc., etc., etc. Instead the name listed on his "ORIGINAL" birth certificate was....."baby boy". My dad like all his brothers were born at home on the farm in the 1930's. He could have picked any name he wanted, but stuck with the one he grew up with, Glenn boring!!

From 1990's Massachusetts: Chevy Van Pickup (yes, they were lower class Indigenous etc. named Pickup, and that's what they named their baby boy).

Sorry, I got into a thread drift here as I was trying to remember where I heard about this name, and here it is: from The Boston Globe 1997. He was 11 years old. Link below.

He is Chevy Van Pickup so named because his parents thought it sounded cool. He's here for allegedly mugging a woman outside a package store in Athol, a small town near the New Hampshire border where he lives. Chevy already is the youngest child in the custody of the state Department of Youth Services, the agency that oversees the treatment and punishment of kids in trouble.
His rap sheet would be impressive if he were an adult, never mind a child a decade shy of the legal drinking age. Athol police first picked him up when he was 5 years old (his mother can't remember what he did). When Chevy was 7 years old, the youngest age at which someone can be charged with a crime in Massachusetts, he was arrested four times once for attacking another student with a trumpet. Now confined to a facility for young criminals in Lancaster, Chevy spends his free time making cards for his grandfather and trying to earn good behavior points so he can buy presents for his sisters. For the first time, he is learning how to read.
The public price: There is no shortage of help for the Pickups, almost all of it paid for by taxpayers. There is a DSS worker, a DYS worker, a counselor from the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, afterhours school counselors, child psychiatrists, and public defenders. In addition, taxpayers are picking up the enormous cost of placing Chevy and Michael in DYS custody.
The state and Athol schools are sharing a $ 75,000 a year bill for Chevy's stay in Lancaster. The program in Springfield where Michael is serving his DYS commitment costs $ 63,946 per year. "By the time these kids are 18, the state will have spent a million dollars on them," says one of their social workers. But no one seems happy with the results.
