"Mossy" Lawn was reportedly named after a real English doctor, but I can't Google him, only some American politicians. Can anyone place the original? --Old Dickens (talk) 04:30, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
See here. --Old Dickens (talk) 00:30, 7 August 2019 (UTC)

Some others listed here. --Old Dickens (talk) 18:07, 4 May 2018 (UTC)

Gytha Ogg

I can vouch for the info about Gytha North -- I was acquainted with her in the 1980s. We conversed long on SF and fantasy, and particularly their writers. --Lias Bluestone (talk) 23:55, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

Ah, but did she pay something for the inclusion or was she owed something for the suggestion? Tuckerization or inspiration? --Old Dickens (talk) 03:43, 16 March 2021 (UTC)
I confess I honestly don't know. It was long, long ago. 1987 was the last time I saw her. I believe it was inspiration. --Lias Bluestone (talk) 22:43, 17 March 2021 (UTC)
Or Colette Reap, come to think of it. --Old Dickens (talk) 04:01, 16 March 2021 (UTC) But I'm on the wrong track, here, as is the opening of the page. Tucker himself (wonderful character, doesn't get enough credit) didn't auction name-checks in his books, he just used names of acquaintances as the mood struck him. Several of the Discworld characters are from chance encounters with fans or professional encounters like Dave Hodges. Tuckerization by charitable donation probably needs another name, or some delineator. --Old Dickens (talk) 00:19, 18 March 2021 (UTC)
