Naming Names in the 113th Congress

I never gave much thought to Congressional names until Anthony Weiner hit the headlines in 2011, as a disgraced member of the 112th Congress. 
 Now we have the 113th Congress with its 535 voting members – 435 in the House of Representatives (plus six non-voting delegates), and 100 from the Senate. Are there any members in this batch of political gems who also have interesting names?
