    Although the OP started by citing unusual or lyrical names, it looks like others here share my amusement in athlete names that are perfectly suited for their event, like the aforementioned Nathan Leeper. (Stepanova is a classic!)

    Others that come to mind, present and past:

    • Mac Fleet
    • Throwers Russ and Kara Winger
    • UCLA pole vaulter Reed Scale
    • Steeplechaser Graeme Fell

    James Jett is mostly known for his NFL career, but he ran the 4x100 for the US in the 1992 Olympics.

    Nate Slowly (sprinter)
    (Not certain of his 1st name, but I know I saw results for a sprinter named "Slowly"---last name!)
    His name was Steve Slowly. He was a Jamaican who ran for TCU.

    I have always been a futuristic sort of person. Another good name from those futuristic Christchurch Commonwealth Games was Silver Ayoo.
