I am looking for famous people whose names have an direct English translation.

For example Joe Green = Giuseppi Verdi.

Any ideas?

Henry and Julian Churches (Enrico and Julio Iglesias)
Michael Cooper (Fassbender)
Any number of Masons (Kardashian literally stone-carver.)
Alfred Little-Peace (Al Pacino)
Tony Flags (Antonio Banderas)
Justin Beaver, obviously…. ;-)

Thanks to a pointless internet quiz that popped up a few weeks ago for these I can't remember the rest that were on it, sorry.

The ex-boss of the Ferrari Formula 1 team, Stefano Domenicali. Loosely translates as Steve Sunday.
