How Do the True Blood Writers Name New Characters?

Do you ever ponder how Eric Northman got his name? Or why Bill Compton wasn’t named Gale Clampton?

It’s these questions that keep us hard-core Truebies up at night, and we finally have answers for some of the names of characters on True Blood.

In the first episode of True Blood season 5, we’ll meet a character named Cat Ingerslev. The episode’s writer, Brian Bucker created this name by combining the monikers of two ladies in the True Blood art department: art director Cat Smith and production designer Suzuki Ingerslev. How creative!

Now, who’s up to the challenge of tracking down the real Russell Edgington and kissing his bejeweled fingers in gratitude?
