I was recently reading about the crossword plagiarism scandal.
And the target of the investigation "edited" with numerous, possibly pseudonymous names, as the "authors" of the plagiarised puzzles. Two of the names on puzzles used as examples are Kendall Twigg (pretty rare) and Harper Dantley. Harper Dantley struck me as _such_ an improbably name that I headed over to pipl, where I saw a result I have NEVER seen before in my life: Zero hits. None whatsoever. Nobody has the name Harper Dantley. There are people with the first name Harper. There are people with the last name Dantley. There is no one with the name Harper Dantley, other than as a byline on a crossword puzzle.
Whatever name generator the editor is using is every bit as good as the one JAK uses when generating her character names. It's kind of impressive, and tougher than it seems, to come up with names that _almost_ sound like real names, but turn out not to actually be real names, of anyone at all, anywhere.
The editor compares puzzles having the same themes (on a very granular level) to two sitcoms using the same joke. Which is perhaps not the BEST argument to use, given the rancor associated with joke stealing.
