I have a couple of friends who took an interesting approach to 
the name game.  His name was Fruehling, which I was told is
German for spring.  Her name was Lockwood.  Their solution was
to create a new family name: Springwood.   His father wasn't
thrilled, but eventually got used to to it.  And based on telephone,
registries, they're also the only Springwoods in the US.

Won't work for everyone, but certainly a unique compromise.
