Tybalt or Not Tybalt...

If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, you know that we haven’t yet tired of playing around with the U.S. Census to find interesting names. Because today is Shakespeare’s birthday, here are some folks whose parents were apparently influenced by the Bard:

Feste Salisbury
Toby Aguecheek
Malvolio Thomas (Twelfth Night)

Shylock Moorehouse (The Merchant of Venice)

Petruchio Sweeting (The Taming of the Shrew)

Oberon Hope
Titania Kaldrubski
Nick Bottom (A Midsummer Night’s Dream)

Othello Crisp
Desdemona Chubbuck
Iago Jones (Othello)

Lear Argiopoulos
Goneril Gottshall (King Lear)

Tybalt Longcore
Mercutio Munro
Benvolio Sanborn (Romeo and Juliet)

Timon Maddox (Timon of Athens)

Cleopatra Beamer (Antony and Cleopatra)

Hamlet Beagles
Hamlet Boring (Hamlet -- I couldn’t resist including both of these!)

Prospero Adams (The Tempest)

Coriolanus Pilkington (Coriolanus)

Hotspur Huggin
Falstaff Pallotta (Henry IV)

In related news, today is my son’s birthday. I love the name we gave him, but I’m thinking I should’ve checked out my old copy of the Riverside Shakespeare for inspiration. I could’ve gone with Benvolio -- Ben for short!
