Remember who: yes
Remember spelling: you must be joking; however I do remember that the
name is given in Knuth TAOCP vol 3 as a test case for the soundex
algorithm.

name = u"\u0141ukasiewicz" # Python syntax so we're not completely OT
:-)

The first letter is LATIN CAPITAL LETTER L WITH STROKE.

Cheers,
John
