Call him John McClaine. Failing that try Jean Eric.
The ones with Chad or Dirk in them sound like pornstars, perhaps a rethink is needed on those?

Please, man, these are all the worst, cheesiest names. Go to an online Baby Book and search through the most popular boy names of, say, a previous decade (like the '80s!) and there ya' go!

Why don't you try something like Fabian Steele. The guy could walk into the room, with his head half cocked to the side and say:
"The names Steele...Fabian Steele."
Man if you want cheesy, it doesn't get much more cheesy than that.
Anyway, just a thought.

Fabio Buffchest? that sounds pretty intense.
Miguel Yackson. That sounds strikingly similar to a famous singer.
Oh yeah, I got one more! S.T.D. (stereotypical transvestite dude)

Vincent Steele is pretty good
And Arnold Mcclane would be fitting for a parody...my film is MENT to be stereotypical but not piss takeing,
I think ive narrowed it down to:

I'd get rid of anything with "Steele" in it as it sounds really dodgy (possibly because I immediately think "Remmingon Steele" everytime I hear it).
Alec Sharpe is my favourite so far (a nod to Sean Bean perhaps?). Having just finished 2 years as a law student I've got lists and lists of surnames from various cases so if you want me to bung a few interesting ones up then I'll have a rummage through my notes for you.
List of surnames that might work:
Blaue (Rhymes with "cow")
Danger (I promise this one's real)
Harmer (Ironically this guy was a tattooist)
Larsoneur (Another slightly ironic name for a criminal)
Wacker (Could be misinterpreted I admit)
Those that didn't make the list:

Me and my older brother came up with these.

Rawree thankyou for all the ideas the brains buzzing!
Jaggard and Harrow are very good...but i also thought of another one...Knight?
His Nemises can be "The Jaggard Harrow"
if this gets finalised you will recieve a credit in my film!
Thanks a lot!

Here's an idea:
If you are going to use "Knight" as a last name for one, why not use "Deigh" (any variation of spelling) for the other.
You get the spin off of the "night and day" theme while making the names believable, IMO.
Now how could you go wrong with that?

Thanks Strider, truthfully I'm suprised this name combo hasn't already been used. If it has, I'm not aware of it.

I hear you, Klausky, and here are a few more names that would be hard to deny too:
Anyway, I've got an entire list of these kinds of names, if anyone is interested.
