What's in a name?

I get my ideas for names in my books from two places, the roster of people at the place I work and my spam.  Seriously.  Today at work it was Hedwig Hockgerfelter.  Beautiful.  In my spam list are Natasha Fink, Doyle Grubbs and Buzz Irb.  Seriously, you can't make these up!


  1. I love this idea! No, you can't make those names up...My question? What's up with these parents??

  2. Those parents are in the same (what were they thinking) class as those who name all their kids Peter, except they have a bit more imagination!
