This list shows the origin of most of the character names in
Tommy's story, .
A New Life
Main Characters Edit
Peter Daniels Mitchell - An obvious one. Peter's name was inspired by Telltale Games' character Peter Joseph Randall. His last name was actually inspired by the Mitchell twins of Strife, by CamTheWoot.
Angela Williams - Angela's appearance and name was based of the character of Angie Terence (aka crazy eyes ginger lady), from The Dead Beneath by NotCrazyZora. Yep, I copied Zora, what you gonna do?
Kurt Harrison - Kurt's first name was inspired by Nirvana's lead singer, Kurt Cobain. His last name was taken from the rumored last name of TV Andrea and Amy (AND I AM NOT ASHAMED OF IT!)
Nate Harrison - Nate's first name was inspired by Telltale Games' character Nate.
Barry - Surprisingly, not inspired by The Flash, but rather by Steve Carell's character in 2010's Dinner for Schmucks (shocking, I know.)
Leon Carter - From Riley; First name was simply a minor take from the Italian name Leone, Carter was taken after an old friend.
Tyrone - Inspired by the internet meme "Get your shit together, Tyrone". This is even referenced on the story.
Major Characters Edit
Craig Tucker - Next...
Sarah - Inspired by Telltale Games' character Sarah (Yeah I like to copy Telltale :))
Anthony - Inspired by Red Hot Chilli Peppers' lead singer, Anthony Kiedis.
Matthew - My very first companion on The Walking Dead: Social Game was named Matthew.
Jessie - Name taken from a real-life girl I once wanted to get the booty.
Duke - Inspired by Yu-Gi-Oh's character Duke Devlin, more specifically, the YGO Abridged version.
Dennis Green - Inspired by Alice in Wonderlands', The Wolf Among Us' and famous nursery rhyme character Tweedle Dee. Last name adapted from the Greene family from The Walking Dead.
Duncan Green - Like his brother, inspired by Alice in Wonderlands', The Wolf Among Us' and famous nursery rhyme character Tweedle Dum. Last name adapted from the Greene family from The Walking Dead.
Keith Howard - Name taken directly from Yu-Gi-Oh's character "Bandit" Keith Howard, more specifically, the YGO Abridged version.
Supporting/Minor Characters Edit
Troy - Name chosen from the most useless Telltale Games' character at the time, Troy (who would later grow to be a favorite of mine, oh the irony).
Mr. Johnson - Taken from Ichabod Crane's codename from The Wolf Among Us episode 2.
Katsu - Inspired by real-life childhood friend with the same name.
Diego - Name inspired by the famous Argentinian football/soccer player and grade A coke snorting cunt Diego Armando Maradona.
Vinnie - Adapted from a real-life friend's nickname, Vini.
Norman - As the character is an obvious spoof of AMC's The Walking Dead character Daryl Dixon, it was fitting that he had his name taken from Daryl's actor, Norman Reedus.
Tom - Inspired by Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks and Thomas the Tank Engine.
Bill - Homage to Left 4 Dead's character Bill, which to this day is still my favorite character of the franchise.
Susan - Story World After Death by GhostWolf716 had an African-American female character named Susan and I was too lazy to think of any other name for such a minor character.
Glen - Inspired by AMC's The Walking Dead Seasons 2 and 3 showrunner, Glen Mazzara.
Shaun - Obviously, a reference to the Heavy Rain glitch.
Nick - Name heavily inspired by Grandbro. His weird fixation with Telltale Games' character Nick, and the protagonist of his story, Perseus.
Jack - His name was inspired by actor Jack Nicholson. Might also be inspired by Robert DeNiro's character in the Meet the Parents franchise.
Specials Characters Edit
Ash Dickson - Inspired by GameXplain's Ash Paulsen.
Johnny - Inspired by the protagonist of Grand Theft Auto: The Lost and Damned, Johnny Klebitz.
Jenner - His name was chosen a random, but as I chose it right after re-watching The Walking Dead's episode TS-19, it is likely I got the name from Dr. Edwin Jenner.
Luke - Not inspired by Telltale Games' character Luke (ok maybe just a little). Instead the name is an adapted version of a real-life friend named Lucas.
Alice - Inspired by Skybound's The Walking Dead character Alice Warren.
Eugene Edwards - Inspired by both AMC's The Walking Dead characters Eugene Porter and Steven Edwards.
