Abdelbaset Ali Mohmet al-Megrahi, and “The Black Guy with the Funny Name”
Not to trivialise a serious and tragic subject (honest), but al-Megrahi sounds surprisingly unforeign in a Scottish context. I keep hearing it as Al McGrachy. A kind of reverse of Barak Obama, the Westerner with the Islamic-sounding moniker.
