Da Vinci Code, The Easter Egg - Names

Loads of names in this book are secret references to places or people connected to the st Graal.

1)The guy who is killed at the beginning of the book is named Saunière, just like the priest who in 1914 found out the secrets of the Sion Priory.

2)The guy who knows everything about the Graal is named Leigh Teabing. His name is a refernce to two guys, Richard Leigh and John Baigent (Teabing is an anagram of this surname) who wrote a book about the Graal.

3) Bézu Fache comes from Bézu that is a Village in France were Saunière (the priest) lived

My favourite, tho not really an 'egg', is Bishop Manuel Aringarosa. The (very rough) translation from the Italian 'Aringa rosa' to English is 'red herring!' Ok, he seems important to the story.. but we find that he is just as manipulated as a number of other characters!

Also, Langdon's publisher is called J. Faukman. The surname is an anagram of J. Kaufman, Brown's own publisher.
