I think this is a great name, even though it is easily recognizable as Italian. Very cool.

Giuseppe Zangara, who tried to shoot U.S. President-elect Franklin Roosevelt in 1933, and wound up killing the mayor of Chicago because he misfired. (He's mentioned as one of the assassins in Sondheim's musical 'Assassins' because of this.)
