Some more of those spare Crush names…

But first…
Dulltown, UK/Europe (Europe, just a few days left!): Today’s quotation is from Vladimir Nabokov’s 1928 novel, King, Queen, Knave, which I re-read a couple of months ago.
Dreyer started to dance with one of the pretty sisters, and then caught up the other, and the girls giggled and curved their supple bare backs as he tried to dance with both together. Franz stood by the window drapery, regretting that he still had not had time to learn to dance.

Aha, the distinctive sound of the flap of the letterbox rattling!
Yes, look, an airmail letter with a USA stamp on it; it’s from Veronica Crush, writer from the glory days of the Hull Surrealist League, now living in New York with tall tree surgeon and heir to a multimillion dollar fortune, Monty Tick.
She moans on about President Thump (as she calls the brute) for a good two pages, but she has also included another batch of her spare character names for me share with my readers, and also with any budding writers with little or no imagination, who have problems deciding what to call the people who inhabit their work.
Veronica says that she comes up with several new names every day, and that it’s almost an obsession, she also believes that in an infinite universe all these people must exist somewhere. Now, there’s a thought!
As usual, she has slipped a real person into the list – see if you can guess which one it is. The solution to this little puzzle may be found by clicking the link at the foot of the page.
