Origin of The Simpsons' Names.

Wikipedia has a neat list of the origins of the names of "Springfieldians," many of which came from people and places familiar to Matt Groening (the show's creator):

  • Lisa Marie Simpson – Lisa Groening (Matt Groening's sister) and Lisa Marie Presley
  • Marge – Marjorie (commonly called Marge) Groening (Matt Groening's mother was named "Margaret" and nicknamed "Marge")
  • Homer – Homer Groening (Matt Groening's father and one of his sons)
  • Maggie – Maggie Groening (one of Matt Groening's sisters)
  • Bart – an anagram for "brat", a reference to Groening himself
