Mahatma Gandhi

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was the preeminent leader of Indian nationalism in British-ruled India. Employing non-violent civil disobedience, he led his country to independence and inspired movements for freedom across the world with principles like "Ahimsa" (nonviolence) which insured that nobody would be hurt during their struggle against colonial rule. The man who is considered by many as one if not the greatest figures ever born out of Asian soil had this name given after him due care taken when calculating where each letter should go within its respective word thus creating an acronym--a phrase usually translated into English as 'life founded on love'.
