First names for surnames

Was having a conversation today during the United game, in which Wayne Rooney, Poet Laureate of the Premiership, scored what was indisputably the goal of the season, about people who have first names for surnames, because the referee was called Neal Barry. Heres my England team of current players with first names for surnames.

1. David James (or Nigel Martyn)
2. Philip Neville
3. Ashley Cole (allowed because Cole Porter is my evidence here)
4. John Terry
5. Gary Neville
6. Steven Gerrard
7.Lee Clark (allowed Clark Kent is my evidence, although a fictional character)
8. Gareth Barry
9. Michael Owen
10. Kevin Phillip(s)
11. Shaun (Wright) Phillip(s)

Ok some are dubious, but its not an awful side and they're all in the right positions, so that was pretty good i thought. My favourite is Collins John who plays for Fulham, i think that's hilarious, because that's a name that's totally backwards, and if you remember, Fulham did have a player called John Collins a couple of years back, so its like some backwards world or something, which is GREAT. My absolute favourite thing though is when people have objects or words for second names, some footballers who have this are: Shay Given and Nicky Hunt (rare ones because their names are verbs, not nouns), Stefan Postma (regrettably one letter away from Postman which would have been brilliant), Gary Speed, Ray Parlour and, of course (one size) Fitz Hall.
