Names who's surname contain a verb in it's infinitive form (I think it's called the infinitive but I'm no linguist), basically names that you can reply "Does he/she?" after hearing them. (Eg "LeAnn Rimes". "Does She?!")

RULES:

1) The person must be relatively famous (In the public eye at least, the more famous the better)
2) Spelling not important, it's all about how it sounds (Courtney Cox is a great one)

Also it's better if they are real people but fictional also welcome (eg Billy Shears)

Me and my brother have been coming up with these for about 10 years now, our list is still only about 50 strong, they're pretty rare. Let's see what you're made of .org....

To get you started here's 10 from my top shelf....

Wesley Snipes
Jimmy Greaves
Jeremy Irons
Ryan Giggs
Roger Waters
Britney Spears
Ed Balls
Camilla Parker-Bowles
Tom Waits
Nobby Stiles

Ronnie Wood belongs in a similar but separate list

"Ronnie Wood." "Does he?" - It just doesn't quite work

He's in the same list as "Peter Took" and it's an even shorter list

Good effort though

(I've put a lot of thought into this)
