You might want to say name/title because some of these are not first names. (e.g. Don Quixote.) Also, Tuck Everlasting is the name of a book not a character in a book. Nice quiz though and really fun.

@violetgrass Thanks, it's fixed. (And I've added five more answers)
Jan 5th, 2013 at 01:32 GMT
"whose" not "who's" in the title?
Jan 5th, 2013 at 16:43 GMT
Good quiz! This matching thing has a flaw, though - one of the Marys doesn't match up with the correct name (the second Mary with the more well-known name). I think it's a problem inherent to the type of quiz. Would it be possible to swap out a Mary for someone else with a unique first name? Thanks!
Jan 5th, 2013 at 17:48 GMT
@rszbdx Yes it would, thanks for pointing that out.
Jan 15th, 2013 at 10:49 GMT
Fun quiz, but the time was a little short!
Jan 15th, 2013 at 14:06 GMT
Thanks wiggytitch for the pick!!!!!
Jan 15th, 2013 at 17:18 GMT
Right when I saw doctor, I automatically went to search for who >.
Jan 16th, 2013 at 15:43 GMT
Who else almost clicked "Major Quimby"?
Jan 16th, 2013 at 19:02 GMT
My mind was clearly in the wrong category. When I saw "Daisy" I started looking for "Duke".
Jan 17th, 2013 at 18:37 GMT
Something is wrong with the stats. I got all the answers correct, but it's showing 0 answers correct. I've tried three times and gotten the same result.

good quiz but maybe add a minute, doesn't need to be a blitz
Jan 19th, 2013 at 17:50 GMT
@tmonation and talmanes As of right now 12.4% of people are getting them all, I don't think I should add a minute. But I'm still debating on whether or not to.
Jan 22nd, 2013 at 11:53 GMT
Could do with a little more time, I think. Was scary, but I managed to get all of them with 1 second left on the clock! (If I'd have mis-clicked, that would've been it lol).
Jan 22nd, 2013 at 13:33 GMT
I added a minute.

Thanks for the publish, Sporcle! This quiz started out as a quiz like wiggytitch's Matching Novels quiz, but then I realizes that it had been done so I had to think of a quick fix, and I saw that on my source a lot of the novels were names so I created this.
Feb 14th, 2013 at 19:14 GMT
I know he's not really a book, but as soon as I saw Elmer I was off looking for "Fudd".
Feb 14th, 2013 at 20:41 GMT
I spent way too long looking for Buchanan after I saw Daisy.
Feb 14th, 2013 at 21:14 GMT
Anybody else see Jones and ask why Tom wasn't in the first names?
Feb 14th, 2013 at 21:15 GMT
Gotta slow down. Almost clicked "Johnny Holmes".
Feb 14th, 2013 at 21:21 GMT
I did one even sillier, skuban. I saw Ivan and looked for Hoe.
Feb 14th, 2013 at 21:36 GMT
Charles Dickens sure did have a straightforward method of naming his books, didn't he?
Feb 14th, 2013 at 21:41 GMT
Nothing like a good puzzler with a TWIST.
Feb 14th, 2013 at 23:47 GMT
I was similarly puzzled some above and after a few no-shows I went to the surnames and worked backwards. Much easier! :) I got down to three I didn't know and made lucky enough guesses that I got all three. Fun quiz!
Feb 15th, 2013 at 05:07 GMT
"Meany"—let's see... Bugs? Colm?
Feb 15th, 2013 at 11:24 GMT
I'm not even going to ask how I missed Sherlock, but I did. I feel an intense shame.
Feb 15th, 2013 at 13:27 GMT
"Cool!...They should call this book 'Johnny Deformed.' "
Feb 15th, 2013 at 21:48 GMT
Just for the record, it's Nickleby, not Nickelby. (I gave Edgar "Allen" Poe a pass elsewhere, but now I'm provoked!)
Feb 19th, 2013 at 14:29 GMT
Another Sporcle lesson: When in doubt, pick the title character names that rhyme.
May 14th, 2013 at 02:51 GMT
In 9th grade English I had to read this story called "Winter Dreams" and the main character's love interest was named Judy Jones so I immediately clicked that. I was really sad to find I was wrong.
