Interesting article - thanks.

I am particularly happy to have learnt a new word - 'aptronym' - excellent!

4/12.... purely by guesswork. Sadly I haven't gotten around to reading much Dickens.

You wouldn't care to suggest your favourite Harry, as something for me to start with?

I'd suggest either: Christmas Carol, Bleak House, or Great Expectations. Fascinating characters, interesting plots.
