However, just a quick leaf through some racing entry lists could provide hours of fun for a Noam Chomsky or Ferdinand de Saussure. There are drivers whose names are adjectives, who make you think that their name reveals something about their character or essential qualities. I'm thinking Pete Lovely, Swede Savage, Scott Sharp. There are drivers whose names are verbs, who jolt you out of your high carb induced stupor by the sheer force of their name being a complete sentence. Like Boris Said, or Andy Rouse. Then there are the most precious of drivers' names -- indeed the most precious people -- with surnames that are also abstract nouns. These raise us out of our petty, foetid troubles and allow us to converse in the realm of ideas. Will Power. John Love. Piers Courage.
Please suggest them below and I will add them to the list.
