Lloyd Braun was the name of an ABC executive. I don't recall his exact title. But he must have been significant in some way to spoof.

THE READ "LLOYD BRAUN" WAS THE ABC VICE PRESIDENT WHO TURNED DOWN JERRY SEINFELD'S SHOW. HE DIDN'T LIKE IT AND DIDN'T WANT IT ON HIS NETWORK. BRANDON FRASIER FROM NBC THOUGHT IT WOULD BE FUNNY, AND GAVE JERRY A SHOT. EVEN THOUGH THE FIRST FEW EPISODES WERE NOT WELL RECEIVED, BRANDON LIKED THE WHOLE IDEA ENOUGH TO ORDER 9 MORE EPISODES.

Another egg - In "The Subway," Kramer gets a tip on a horse named Papanick. If you watch the credits closely, you'll see that Pete Papanicholas is a key grip for the show. If you can't find it, check out IMDB.com.

I don't know if it was the same actress that portrayed her, but in the episode with the muffin tops, the angry woman who comes into the shop to yell about the 'stumps' said her name was Rebecca Demornay too.

In alot of the Seinfeld episodes George has to think up a fake name it usually is Art Vanderly. Kramer also makes reference to a friend of his Bob Sacamato. Any idea who these are?

Okay, this isn't really an egg. In interviews about the show, the issue of People magazine with the article about the show when it ended, and elsewhere, Jerry himself tells that these characters were named after real life people. In fact, they interview the real Kenny Kramer in that issue of People magazine. I also thought that it was common knowledge that these characters were based on real life people, but I guess not, since someone made an "egg" about it.
