Default Character names

In another thread somewhere (sorry, its late and I can't be bothered to track it down) there is a discussion as to how Don Belisario liked to use certain names, such as Tom and Lisa.

I got VisionQuest - Deborah Pratt's novel - this week, and it made me think about how people are influenced to name their characters (I know I do it all the time!)
In the dedications at the start of the book, Deborah mentions a Geraldine Bryant Pratt - remind you of anyone in this episode?

Of course, it could have been that he was named for Dr Bryant, the drunken professor in Educating Rita [played by Michael Caine - 1983]
