Which of course gets one thinking:

Charlie Brown - Severian
Lucy - Thecla
Sally - Merryn
Snoopy - Triskele
Linus - Jonas
Pigpen - Hethor
Peppermint Patty - Agia
Miss Othmar - Malrubius

Lex Shellac, contemplating Charlie Brown (after eating Lucy's brain)

p.s. I've heard the names "Dorcas" and "Ultan" on television within
the last week.  The latter on CNN I think, though I don't recall where
the person was from.
