I am looking for a way to match letters and their accented equivalents in a SPARQL query.  For example, a search for names beginning with the letter O would return names such as Osbourne, Owen, but also Ímen.  I have found lots of resources around normalising accented characters, but essentially we are trying to go the other way, by taking a non-accented character and matching it against itself and all its possible accented equivalents.

Has anyone done this before and if so how?
