There are some really good ones here. Kinda memorable. I guess that's bad.

We're Sure TheNewHero wrote:I can't tell you my name. Because then I'd be fired from the spy organization I work with. The one I was born into, the role I inherited from my parents. I wish I wasn't a spy. It's hard.
"Abby?" - My real name is Abbys, but my friends call me Abby.

*Misspelling intended.

What you think? After Twilight, giving your character this stereotypical name is going to get her in bad light of the readers. So I swear never to use names from any hit novel. Especially MC's.

Seriously? Ha! I always thought it stood for Mike Junior…That is hilarious. Poor kid, though :P
Okay, here's mine:
Constable James Adam Vert. This was a character in one of my stories. The press like to call him Constable J. A. Vert if they wrote articles on him. Props to anyone who gets the horribly obvious reference I made there. I changed his name to Constable Green, so it's less obvious. :)
