Fascinating Names

I love words. My favorite commercial is for Gas-X. You know the one. A guy is there for a job interview and is obviously discomforted with, well, shall we say inflated gastro-intestinal air. As the interview progresses, he hears important words differently and they are all somehow related to his condition, such as "Your son Rip is on line toot."
When I was growing up, there was a wonderful family in our community by the last name of Streeter. Mr. Streeter's first name was Marion and his wife's name was Virgil. I always thoughts their names should have been reversed to correctly reflect their gender.
