Lolita Easter Egg - Nabakov's Namesake

In the novel "Lolita", Vladmir Nabokov introduces the character, Vivian Darkbloom, a playwrite and author. The name 'Vivian Darkbloom' is almost a perfect anagram of Nabokov's name, save on letter 'i'. Pretty neat. The book is filled with other such eggs. It's a great read.

Incidentally, Vladimir (notice the extra i) is a real Russian name. Maybe that's where the i went? :P
