    I was recently looking online at a webpage with a listing of celebrity birthnames. According to this site, Omar Sharif was born as Michael Shalhoub. I've noted to myself on numerous occasions how much Tony Shalhoub looks like Omar Sharif.

    Are they related, or are my suspicions incorrect?

    If I remember rightly, Omar Shariff is Egyptian. Tony Shalhoub is Lebanese, so at best it would probably be a coincidental name.
