People with animal names sometimes arise.

Robin Fox and Lionel Tiger are two very well-known collaborators who hve published many books on anthropoloty, including the famous "The Imperial Animal,".

A well-known TV sitcom character has bird names first and last: Martin Crane, the father of Frasier.

Martin Woodcock was one of the illustrastors of Ben King's field guide to the birds of southeast Asia.

I've always hoped some bird loving parent would name their daughters Vireo, Tanager and Wren, so their grandchildren would have an Aunt Vireo, etc, to match the names of a group of ant-eating South Americans birs, Ant-vireo, Ant-tanager, and Ant-wren. And a few other less appropirate ones, such as Ant-pitta, Ant-shrike and Ant-thrush.

Debbie Shearwater has for decades arranged very popular off-shore tours of pelagic species of birds off California, including shearwaters, but I don't know if that is her real name or not.

Once heard of a woman named Bunny who married a guy name Jack Rabbit. They divorced after only 2 years but she kept his name.
