    "What's the first name?" - - -
    "I have a horrible feeling that it's Lancelot!"
    "Good God!" said Archie.
    "It couldn't really be that, could it?"
    Archie looked grave. He hated to to give pain, but he felt he must be honest.

  • 1985 Ed McBain: Snow White and Rose Red: page 130:
    "That's her real name, you know. I mean, a lot of girls working the topless joints, they take exotic, sexy names...well, Tiffany Carter, for example...but that was the name Tracy was born with."
