This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Lord of the Flies
Piggy's real name is Peterkin (or at least just Peter).
Lord of the Flies is clearly based on The Coral Island in which the three main characters are Ralph, Jack and Peterkin. Lord of the Flies has no character named Peterkin but it does have Piggy whose real name is never revealed. In addition, Peterkin is depicted as the follower of the trio. Like the rest of the book, the character could be an intentional deconstruction of what it would really be like for him on a deserted island. As a bonus, both names start with P.
