Fitting Names

Mark referred to the book From Mating to Mentality: Evaluating Evolutionary Psychology without mentioning the fact that one of the two editors is the appropriately named Julie Fitness. From my father, a neurologist, I learned as a child of the famous neurologists Lord Brain and Sir Henry Head. I can't think of any linguists whose names reflect their profession.
