Some writers of fiction are known for giving their characters extremely outlandish names.
Tom Wolfe’s novels feature people named Ray Peepgass, Wismer Stroock, Freddie Button, Fareek Fanon, Virgil Ziggefoos, and law firms with names like “Clockett, Padett, Skynnham and Glote”, “Dunning, Sponget and Leach” and “Curry, Goad and Pesterall.”
Cockpit by Steve Keshner features “Ahmed Slitherian” and “Bob Foreskeen”. The book is a “DocuNovel,” meaning that the events are real but some of the names are changed. I’m assuming those two were among them.
The Crying of Lot 49 has Oedipa Maas, Pierce Inverarity, Mike Fallopian and Genghis Cohen. (This has to be the winner, I would think.)
What are some other absolutely absurd names from literature?
