Your fictional namesakes

I just downloaded a book and discovered that the main character has my wife's maiden name (it's also my great-great-grandmother's name). The name is not a very common one, though the author used it as a pun and pronounced it differently to make it work.

And I remembered that the title character of the movie "Max" has the same last name as mine.

Now I'm sure if your name is Jones or Smith or Johnson, it's pretty easy to find examples. But how about less common names? Do you have any fictional namesakes?

Bonus if both first and last name match, but first name matches are probably too easy.
