Can't narrow it down to just one, but one of them would be Rocket J. Squirrel.

Jubal Harshaw from Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land. He's described thusly: "Jubal E. Harshaw, LL.B., M.D., Sc.D., bon vivant, gourmet, sybarite, popular author extraordinary, neo-pessimist philosopher, devout agnostic, professional clown, amateur subversive, and parasite by choice."
Another memorable Bond name.....P***y Galore.

At the same time .

And they both had eight letter last names and the first four letters were the same (both of them were Swedish).

They were vegetarians, non-smokers and teetotallers and wore a special kind of underclothes. In their house there was very little furniture and very few clothes on the beds and the windows were always open.

Eustace Clarence liked animals, especially beetles, if they were dead and pinned on a card. He liked books if they were books of information and had pictures of grain elevators or of fat foreign children doing exercises in model schools."
For some reason that name made me think of Buford T. Justice .

J.R.R. Tolkien had lots of great hobbit names:
Bilbo Baggins
Hamfast Gamgee
Peregrine Took (Pippin)
Meriadoc Brandybuck (Merry)
Lobelia Sackville-Baggins


We gave our two corgis hobbit names: Mister Underhill and Rosie Cotton.

Not fictional, but there was a young girl competing in some 4H Club thing at the Ohio State Fair and her name was Rusty Clutter. Ain’t that just the best dang farm girl name ever?
