Irish crooner Ted Calamari took his own life upon learning his namesake was in fact, fried squid. His son Basil Calamari learned some years later, that the family name was taken from Calamari bay in County Donegal, but then also took his life upon learning that the bay was named for its squid fishing industry. The reason for this was never fully explained.
