Teams & Riders Coolest Names in the Peloton*

The Van den Berg discussion in the Transfers and Rumours thread made me think of the irony of Van den Berg being one of the most popular last names in the Netherlands.
On the first sight it may seem strange, but to me it actually makes a lot of sense. Imagine if they had hills all around, it would be of no use calling someone "from the hill" because half of the people would be living in the hills so such name would make no differentiation between them.
But if hills are precious around you, it is a very fitting name for that one person who lives there. So every community probably had their Vandenberg and the rest is history...
Edit: and as RhD correctly pointed out, the term "Berg" might have been used rather vaguely...
 
Damn, not only is this an absolutely epic 4 word last name but the man looks like Nicholas Latifi, who curiously has the same first name as him.

Let's hope he doesn't crash and decides an important race because of that.
