I don't know how many people will be able to render Cyrillic properly in their browser, but the way I would write Harpo Marx in Russian is:

"ХАРПО МАРКС"

You can see how if you try to read it in English it naturally comes out as "Ex"-"Ap"-"No" "Map"-"KC" (Like Casey) -- Exapno Mapcase

Edit: That teaches me not to refresh.
