John Lacey?

Yeah, John Lacey. I took the name from a character in a television series called "Dear John", which I was very fond of as a child, and serves as an interesting example of how things can be the same and yet different between realities. The actor Ralph Bates played John in my universe and also played him in this universe, so its the same, but in my universe there was never an American remake, which makes it different.

Other names I considered before I departed were mainly from fictional characters that may or may not exist here, including Luther Sloan, Blake Tarrant, and Butch Rosedale, but none of those seemed as ordinary and forgettable as John Lacey.
