Have you ever run into a name that you can’t help associating with a completely different context? Like when people realize that one guy in Office Space is named Michael Bolton? Or when you look at “AD&D,” and instead of “Accidental Death and Dismemberment” your first thought is “Advanced Dungeons and Dragons?”
Yeah. Especially in IKEA.
For example, here we have Harry Potter’s favorite instructor in Defense Against the Dark Arts at Hogwarts, magically transformed into a set of venetian blinds.
And here’s the thief who ends up as one of Blake’s 7 on the Liberator…as a set of sheets. (Nine of them, no doubt, to the wind.)
And it’s not just IKEA. Robin of the Teen Titans has his criminal counterpart in this bottle of wine:
Or the older daughter of Eddard Stark, playing music instead of the Game of Thrones.
So, what good crossover names have you seen?
