It's rather obscure, but If you're from South Tyrol or Tirol in general then Max Walscheid sounds really odd.
The reason for it? Walsch is a derogatory term for Italians and things that come from Italy that is commonly used around here and Eid means oath in German.
Yeah i get it :D

Winner Anacona.
Come on, his name is Winner! I know it's due to a mistake, but honestly, I just think that makes it even cooler since it means he has an interesting story to tell.
And you don't know what the last part of his name means in portuguese. :D

Sonny Colbrelli is pretty cool. Taken out of a Godfather movie.
I've never seen the godfather.

I have to say I've played a lot of GTA Vice City, which has been inspired by it, and it seems like a name that would fit in perfectly
GTA Vice City is inspired by the film Scarface. The mansion is the same as in the film, the story is very similar as is the ending and the setting. 1 of the characters - Rosenberg, is lifted straight from the movie Carlito's way which is in some way a sequel to Scarface.

GTA 3 is the one largely based Mafia stereotypes. Maybe a little bit the Godfather but the Godfather always portrayed Mafia as some sort of men of honour whereas in the GTA world they are all just criminals.
A few characters appear there and then in Vice City.
