Leftover questions not answered in ykttw before launch:
- Would Mr. Snuffleupagus from Sesame Street count, do you all think? He's not a pet, and after his family showed up he was renamed into Aloysius Snuffleupagus, "Snuffy" to his friends.
- Literature: Noboru Wataya from The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle is named after the protagonist's brother in law.
- Random Surfer asks: what if anything does "Noboru Wataya" mean? If it's not "Mr. Smith" or some such, I don't think it counts.
