Great point for controversy. The Ninja Turtles have become such icons of popular culture. It is wonderful that their names refer to the prominent artists of the Renaissance. Because of the TMNT most kids know these artist's names. However, it is a pity that the personalities of the Turtles diverge so much from the historical figures. Michelangelo, for example, such a happy go lucky dude as a turtle has no resemblance at the bad-tempered Michelangelo Buenarotti

I agree with this controversy. I named my son Raphael after the artist and anytime I tell anyone his name they say "Like the Ninja Turtle?" It used to bother me but now I figure what the heck lets play it up and dress him like the Ninja Turtle for Halloween.
