My favorite character name is "Watch," the dog member of the family in the Boxcar Children book series. A perfect, unconventional name for a dog. My children became especially giddy when I was reading aloud to them and the dog's name came up. I'd say "Watch" and they'd wonder if I meant the dog or they were to watch out for something. Also I'd occasionally change up words in the stories I read aloud. Watch became Timex sometimes or some other brand.
