    Artful Dodger from Oliver Twist. (Fagin's number one thief)

    Dickens was so fond of naming his characters such that their names reflected some aspect of their character or roles that now fictional names that reflect the character are said to be DICKENSIAN.

    Consider other such Dickensian named characters from that same work
