Well, to begin with,

Each of the letters of the name are ROMAN NUMERALS, so

Mr. Indiana can type in a minute nine difficult words. I = (one minute)
Mr. Victor sows five rows of corns in twenty two days. V = (five rows)
Ms. Xanthappe ran __ kilometres in ____ minutes. X = (10 Kilos)
That Llama is known to eat fifty pounds of fodder in __ minutes. L = (fifty pounds)
Madam Camma lived for full ____ years in a third world country. MC = (1100 years)
Lady Diana drove five hundred miles in a hurry fleeing from the ___ estate. LD = (450? miles)
Did Madonna sing over ____ songs during the last thirteen years ? M = (1000 songs)

Still cogitating on the remainder...
