Some Names for Your Weekend

Bartolome Brazoban Perez

John Hakizimana

Lotus Rockwell

Marc Mertulien

Marcelo Mardirossian

Samuel Semerzier

As you might have noticed, alliteration catches my eye. I'm also partial to more than three syllables in a surname. I've always enjoyed Armenian type names like Kurkjian, Parseghian, or for Heller fans, Yossarian. And Lotus Rockwell is just cool.

anachorism already works for that.

Even though there are twice as many occurrences of anachorism as there are anatopism (4,400 to 2,200), I'm gonna stick with anatopism for a couple reasons. First, I "created" (though it previously existed) it for myself, and second, the Shorter OED has anatopism and not anachorism. And while it isn't worth anything Wikipedia has an entry for anatopism too. What does "chor" mean in Greek?

I don't really like the close spelling of anachorism and anachronism either, and it seems like anachorism has more connotation of error or mistake, while I'm looking for "out of place." Thank you for providing some options though, I do appreciate it.
