This could include parodied famous names (US courts have held that parodies are protected; I don't know how well this hold up internationally); volunteered--and released--names of actual techwrlers (for those who seek cheap fame); parodied names of famous ex-techwrlers; add your own category here.

Albert Me
I. Fiddle
I.M. Roman
Jesse Hernow
Kara Mia
Mary Quickly
Peter Outer
Sandy Beech
Sara Bellum
Seymour Hare
Warren Piece
