    Heh, not only do the Mets have Lastings Milledge, but Endy Chavez as well (I believe he has a brother named Ender, but I don't think he plays in the major leagues).

    "Coolest" names - you need look no futher than (proper) football which has given us the following:-

    Stephan Kuntz
    Uwe Fuchs
    Forbes Phillipson-Masters (give us an F, give us an O etc.)
    Buster Footman
    Mike Trebilcock (unfortunately pronounced Trebilco - it's much funnier in written form)
    Efe Sodje
    The aforementioned Danny Shittu

    And the king of them all - Wayne Wanklyn
