Naming your characters after real life people

Do any of you name your characters (usually the evil ones) after infamous people in life?

I tend to name my evil, unholy characters after someone insidious from history, or from the current day.

For example, I created a character called "Tommy Davis" based on the scientology PR loony; It's tremendous fun to make that 'pretty boy' who is supposed to be calm when questoned about his 'faith' and ideology but instead becomes a nasty spoilt y 5 old bratt,with anger management problems become a floor kissing whelp who grovels to the higher ups in his thieves guild and serves Nocturnal and Sithis....HAH!!!

Trust me, who wouldn't want to take the micky out of THIS guy?

Check out his arrogance at 0:20, it makes you want to head butt him on the nose very, VERY hard!!!

Darn, I hoped I would get that changed before anybody saw!

Is Barackas afraid of flying?

I'm also going to make two evil characters based off of the ones in this video.

Gary Greenwald looks like a certain 1980's sleazy porn producer (the mostashe in particular looks really sleazy on him. and the haircut.....ugh!), and Phil Phillips looks like Richy Rich, with his plastic haircut and obnoxious smirk.

What about a Bosmer rocking the Ring of Namira called Geoffrey Dahmer?
