Ever wonder if fictional characters have real names?

A friend just posted this CNN article recently on Facebook, where it lists 23 characters, known by their nicknames, and what their real names are along with extra trivia.

  • Barbie's full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts and Ken's last name is Carson?
  • Macguyver's first name was Angus?
  • Snuffy from Sesame Street's full name is Aloysius Snuffleupagus?
  • Guy Smiley's real name is actually Bernie Liederkrantz?
  • The Pillsbury Dough Boy's name is Poppin' Fresh and he's married to Poppie Fresh and they have 2 kids named Popper and Bun-Bun?
  • Monopoly's Rich Uncle Pennybag's first name is Milburn?

Check out the rest of the article on CNN, gathered by the folk at Mental Floss - a strange but fun trivia site.
