Red Sox players with unique first and last names

Which Sox players have both a first name and a last name, neither of which are shared by anyone else in baseball history? Nope, not Rusney Castillo. Not Hipolito Pichardo. Not Josias Manzanillo. Not George Stone. Not even Covelli Crisp. These are the ones we came up (with three of them from just 2006). If you find another one, be sure to let us know.

Elden Auker
Truman Clevenger
Gar Finnvold
Kason Gabbard
Creighton Gubanich
Devern Hansack
Smead Jolley
Daisuke Matsuzaka
Dustan Mohr
Hideo Nomo
Tomokazu Ohka
Arquimedez Pozo
Osee Schrecengost
Heathcliff Slocumb
LaSchelle Tarver
Ugueth Urbina

One might think Nomar Garciaparra would belong on the list, but Kiko Calero’s full name was Enrique Nomar Calero. Admittedly, that’s pretty obscure.
