I cant belive I missed that Lenin anagram :P I see our Komrade Kommissar Mikhail K (may revolutionary traktors pave his roads)also includes the name Melor.
It would be cool to compile a list of names constructed by totalitarian and authoritarian regimes. Some more examples include:
- "Stalin", meaning ("steel") in Russian. That was Joseph Jugashvili's adopted handle -- he had all the charm of Hitler, except for the humor.
- Rem, acromym of revolution, Engels, and Marx.
- Melsor, acronym of Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin, and October Revolution. In the 50s most dropped the "s" :PPP
