tries to be too cute in its artificiality.

And I agree that nearly anything is fair game for a given name these days."

Yeah, in my documents, I generally use scifi characters, but change the
names just enough for plausible deniability. I have a Deckard and a
Rachael... I've yet to use "Buckaroo Banzai" or "John Smallberries" but I
do have a "John Parker".

Things that are obviously nudge-nudge cutesy rub me wrong.
