Hotblack & Desiato is a firm of estate agents in SE England who got a bit annoyed when Adams ( brilliantly) adapted its name. There is a slightly cryptic disclaimer in HHGTTG.Douglas Adams had some really cool names for his characters from Hotblack Desiato to Zaphod Beeblebrox.
I'll allow Charles Dickens to slide into the realm of fantasy and say that just about all of his characters are wonderfully named.
