Upcoming contest: 15th January Musical Cryptogram

My friends sometimes ask me to translate his or her name into a musical composition. I must confess that I love these activities as it forces you to make a melodic line out of it. So my challenge is:

Make a piece of music out of a name (can be anyone's)
Pieces should be longer than one minute and less than 3 minutes.
If those who are confused in how to use cryptograms then here is one way you could do this (French method):

I would judge your pieces based on originality, how beautiful it is and bonus if difficult names are used. 
Please in your titles that you need to state the name of the person
The winner will have their piece upvoted and will be followed by me.

Variation on a theme contest (Ended)

It is about the time of the anniversary of the death of my beloved grandfather. As I think I have not done enough deeds for him before he passed away, I would honour him with a contest. I would like you to make a variation on this theme by Schumann. I gave you historical background on the piece in the description of the work.

Edit: Link closed due to the end of the contest

Rules:
This must only be for piano solo
The variation must be under 4 minutes and longer than 30 seconds. 
You may use any form in your composition: sonata, rondo, theme or variations
Have fun!

Winners will  have a follow from me and maybe have their piece placed in my upcoming Carnaval suite for solo piano. 

The contest will end on 6 January (Happy birthday Scriabin!)
Extended to 10th January

Good job to MadDuck for winning this contest!
