Do you have any phrases in your language which contain names of people?
Some in English are:
Tom, Dick and/or Harry
Usually used after "any" [with "or"] or "every" [with "and"] to mean "anyone" or "everyone".
"Don't just let any Tom, Dick or Harry enter."
Jack of all trades, (master of none)
Used for someone who can do many thing but is not an expert in any of them.
"He can do a bit of DIY for you. He's a bit of a Jack of all trades."
"Jack of all trades" isn't the only English phrase that uses the name Jack. Other English phrases where the name Jack appears are: "Go j**k off!" or "What a j*c^as#!".
"Ang kay Pedro ay kay Pedro, ang kay Juan ay kay Juan." (literally means: what belongs to Peter belongs to him alone, and what belongs to John belongs to him alone as well). It's a Tagalog idiomatic expression about respecting other people's property. :)
"Hit the road, Jack!"
"Rob from Peter to pay Paul"
