Naming Characters

Tags:, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , .

This video by Yahoo! News in the “Who Knew” series discusses how some famous characters were named. It caught my attention because Calvin and Hobbes were in the thumbnail. Discussed in the video are Winnie the Pooh, Alice in Wonderland, Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan, Charlottes Web, and Calvin & Hobbes.

It seems like we are in good company by naming the main characters after ourselves. …maybe still a little vain.
