Names in our vocabulary that make you think.

Dr. Mudd. He is real. He is the doctor who worked on John Wilkes Booth who assassinated Abraham Lincoln.

Richard Ira “Dick” Bong (September 24, 1920 – August 6, 1945) is the United States‘ highest-scoring air ace, having shot down at least 40 Japanese aircraft during World War II. He was a fighter pilot in the U.S. Army Air Forces (USAAF) and a recipient of the Medal of Honor. All of his aerial victories were in the P-38 Lightning fighter aircraft.

Doctor No. He was in the James Bond film of the same name and no he is not real.
