Richie Richman is a name that perfectly describes the well-heeled financial position of Mr. Richman. It’s like the name match of Tom Crapper, the man who many credit with inventing the toilet.
In fact, Mr. Crapper was a plumber who founded Thomas Crapper & Company in London and invented the ballcock, or float value, a mechanism that increased the efficiency of the flush toilet by avoiding an overflow or (in the event of inadequate water pressure) a backflow.
Two other people with well-fitting names are Bernie Madoff, who made off with billions from defrauded investors, and Anthony Weiner, who left politics after sexting unseemly selfies and engaging in explicit online chats under the name “Carlos Danger.”
By way of definition, a person’s name that is regarded as amusingly appropriate to their occupation or passion is called an aptronym.
