Random Characters Whose Real Names You Never Actually Knew

  • Indiana Jones on Random Characters Whose Real Names You Never Actually Knew

    (#12) Indiana Jones

    • The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Disaster Movie, The People vs. George Lucas, Indiana Jones franchise

    Indiana Jones's true name is Dr. Henry Walton Jones Jr., but that’s not something audiences found out until Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade when they met Henry Walton Jones Sr. - Indy’s father, as portrayed by Sean Connery. And Jones Sr. was even kind enough to inform viewers of the origin of the nickname while he was at it, when he tersely noted, "We named the dog 'Indiana.'"

    The full heartwarming backstory involves young Henry Jr. falling so in love with his pet dog that he ends up taking on its name as a tribute. It's also a nod to the fact that George Lucas named the character after his own dog, an Alaskan malamute - who just so happened to provide the inspiration for Chewbacca's appearance as well.

  • Minnie Mouse on Random Characters Whose Real Names You Never Actually Knew

    (#7) Minnie Mouse

    • Disney's House of Mouse, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Mickey's Gala Premier, The Nifty Nineties, Mickey's Birthday Party, On Ice, Steamboat Willie, The Gallopin' Gaucho, Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse, A Disney Christmas Gift, The Barn Dance, Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers, Runaway Brain, Mickey's Revue, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas, The Karnival Kid, Parade of the Award Nominees

    Minnie Mouse is a Disney icon, and she has one of those names that definitely sounds like it’s short for something, yet has become so ubiquitous that most don’t put much thought into it. And, though she’s rarely referred to by it, it is true that Minnie’s full name is Minerva Mouse.

    Her real identity was first mentioned in a 1942 comic strip, and has seen sparing use ever since. It does have the unfortunate side effect of making Minnie sound rather grandmotherly. Then again, the character did make her debut in 1928, so perhaps that's appropriate!

  • Goofy on Random Characters Whose Real Names You Never Actually Knew

    (#1) Goofy

    • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Disney's House of Mouse, An Extremely Goofy Movie, Clock Cleaners, Aquamania, Mickey's Trailer, The Reluctant Dragon, Mickey's Birthday Party, On Ice, Saludos Amigos, Orphan's Benefit, Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse, A Goofy Movie, Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers, Goofy Gymnastics, No Smoking, Goofy and Wilbur, Fun and Fancy Free, Lonesome Ghosts, A Knight for a Day, How to Fish, Disney Learning Adventures: Mickey and the Beanstalk, Polar Trappers, Moose Hunters, Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas, Mickey's Revue, A Disney Christmas Gift

    Goofy may be goofy, but he’s not actually "Goofy." Or, at least, he didn’t used to be. Back in the '50s, Walt Disney wanted to reinvent the character, so Goofy started appearing in more domestic cartoons that saw him working ordinary jobs and then coming home to his wife and child. In those days, “Goofy” was more of a nickname, and his paychecks were made out to George Geef - which is apparently his actual name.

    The modern incarnation of the character has dropped the "Geef" motif, and now uses Goof as a surname - as evidenced by his son, Max Goof. It’s unclear if George is still his first name or not, just like it’s unclear what exactly happened to the now mysteriously absent Mrs. Geef.

  • Bucky Barnes on Random Characters Whose Real Names You Never Actually Knew

    (#18) Bucky Barnes

    • Ultimate Avengers, Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel Universe

    Everybody knows Steve Rogers's best friend and sidekick as Bucky Barnes. In fact, the moniker is so ubiquitous that it ends up being used as his codename, too, as in Captain America and Bucky. But it’s quite obviously short for something, and that something is Bucky’s middle name.

    Born as James Buchanan Barnes, Bucky was probably named after the 15th president of the United States. Even as an adult - and even after a half-century of suspended animation - he still goes by his childhood nickname, and only rarely answers to James.

  • Master Chief on Random Characters Whose Real Names You Never Actually Knew

    (#16) Master Chief

    • Halo Legends

    "Master Chief" might not sound like much of a real name, but that’s not entirely unusual in the realm of video games - after all, Mario’s original name was just "Jumpman." In reality, Master Chief is more of a military title, and it’s one that belongs to an otherwise ordinary man known only as John.

    Born on the colony world of Eridanus II, John was selected for the SPARTAN-II Program and given the additional SPARTAN tag of "117" - leaving him with an official "real name" of John-117. It's a wonder that Halo fans haven’t already taken to holding up signs with "John 1:17" on them at sporting events.

  • ALF on Random Characters Whose Real Names You Never Actually Knew

    (#13) ALF

    Savvy television viewers have long known that "ALF" was just an acronymized nickname, short for Alien Life Form. Why the Tanner family needed to create a new name for the creature that joined their family is a bit of a mystery, however, because ALF already had a surprisingly regular name when he came to Earth: Gordon Shumway.

    Gordon’s home world of Melmac either picked up some information from earthly radio broadcasts or experienced impossibly parallel cultural development because their society mirrors that of Earth in many ways - not the least of which is naming conventions. ALF’s parents are named Bob and Flo Shumway, and he’s got two younger siblings named Curtis and Augie.

About This Tool

A name is the name of a person, product, or object in a broad or narrow sense. There are also nicknames, aliases, nicknames, and baby names. Names in the broad sense include the surnames and first names of citizens and the names of legal and non-legal persons; names in the narrow sense refer only to the surnames and first names of citizens. As a combination of name and character.

Name is an important representative of a person, but also to send a good implication. Cartoon characters also have many names, some funny, some appropriate, some lovely, some warm. The random generator tool collates 18 items, collecting characters from cartoons whose real names you may never know. If you’re like Goofy, Cookie Monster, Sonic the Hedgehog, Thanos, Minnie Mouse, and so on, you probably don’t know their real names.
