I went to Brugge last year I believe. At the same time, we visited the Menin Gate and the war graves. The name of it decieves me at the moment. But there was this register thing that had the names of the soldiers who were identified. And loads of people were checking to see if anyone shared their surname with the people listed in the books. I wasn't too bothered and just walked around looking at all these graves - which mostly didn't have names on at all. Then a friend I was with rushed up and told me someone shared their surname with me in the book. Which was surprising. My surname, I shan't say it, but it isn't your every day surname. Very rare. Who knows, I told my Grandma about it once I got back and she said that it was very strange and would have to look it up.
The Menin Gate (in Ypres) has all the the names of the dead/missing soldiers who's body was never found or identified.
