Churchy LaFemme was another great name from Pogo! Walt Kelly had quite a knack for names.

One of my favorite character names is also from the Chronicles of Narnia: Puddleglum, who is a Marsh-Wiggle. Great character, great name.

Of course, probably my favorite character in all of them was Reepicheep.
I love Reepicheep! And Puddleglum is THE BEST name for a Marsh Wiggle. In fact, Marsh Wiggle is a great name.

A Flannery O'Connor story had a southern traveling salesman named Hoover Shoat, which has stuck in mind for decades.
Addie Pray (also the title of the book).

Cheester Gould came up with lots of great nanes. in his Dick Tracy strip. One that comes to mind was E. Kent Hardly. The reason I remember that, at the same time (1959) the real Kent Hadley, slightly different, played a couple of years for the A's and Yankees.

Back in those 50s. the first of the mixed-ethnicity names I heard was a Peanuts little-leaguer on a Lucy-coached team, Jose Peterson.
