7 Fictional Characters Whose Names Give Away the Story

Focus Features


George Wickham from 'Pride and Prejudice'

I COULD say that his last name sounds a bit like "wicked," or something equally as dubious. But the truth is that George is just a jerk name. We all know it. It's like the Jane Austen version of meeting a guy named Chad and just KNOWING he has a trust fund and a work-out routine he likes to talk about. I knew this guy was bad news from the moment he Georged his way into the story.

I apologize to anyone reading this whose name is George. I’m sure you’re cool, even if your name is not. I learned nothing from this book; I still have my prejudices. If it helps, my name makes me sound like the mean girl in a teen movie, and that’s something I have to live with every day.
