Aptronyms and Liberty Celebrations

They're called aptronyms - I just didn't know that when I started collecting them a year or so ago. It's when someone's name reflects their occupation. Like Kingsport city schools reading specialist Karen Reed-Wright and Kingsport dermatologist Dr. Rash.
Slate, the online magazine, has its own collection here.
