The perfect name in this case would be "Tinker".

Behavioural prescription, alliterative initials, great combination with the surname, and has a feminine form, "Tinka". :-)*

@Max... "As soon as she shouted "Galileo!  Galileo!" I would have found it hard to restrain myself from responding: "Galileo Figaro""

You should be careful doing that sort of thing:

...and unisex, to boot, is MURPHY. Hard to believe no one came with that.

@tb100: ...I heard a mother yell out "Galileo!  Galileo!  Come on, it's time to go home!"...

As soon as she shouted "Galileo!  Galileo!" I would have found it hard to restrain myself from responding: "Galileo Figaro"

Perhaps followed by: "Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango? Thunderbolt and lightning, Very, very frightening me."

At which point I would expect the whole park to join in (by which, of course, I men the people in the park)

Add Rosalind Franklin to the list for women.  It has the advantage that nicknames will be easy: Rose or Linda and the initials would be RT!  Realtime!  Children are nothing if not real time!

And there is an Isambard connection there too. There's a great steampunk web comic and graphic novel: Lovelace & Babbage. Isambard Kingdom Brunel shows up in part 3 of this one: http://sydneypadua.com/2dgoggles/lovelace-and-babbage-vs-the-economy/ and in a few of the others in the book.

I also saw a mention of the initials JET in the comments above. I have a friend (who was a pilot) that actually named his son Jet.
