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

Mr. Bumble - The pompous, self-important beadle—a minor church official—for the workhouse where Oliver is born.

Mr. Sowerberry - The undertaker to whom Oliver is apprenticed

Mr. Grimwig - Brownlow’s pessimistic, curmudgeonly friend

Mr. Fang - The harsh, irrational, power-hungry magistrate who presides over Oliver’s trial for pickpocketing.

I started to say Barack Obama earlier but decided not to be the first to take it political.




My favorite entry so far from above is Veruca Salt.

Oops I forgot to add him besides it's not really meant to be political per se but satirical of the hacks on the board who would view each one in their own paradigm as such. :dunno:
