What's in a Name?

I just finished a story where the main character is named after my father, Marvin. It's a perfect fit - or so I think.

me: "Dad, what is your favorite color?."

dad: "Ooooh, oooh! Blue. Why?"

me: "I am writing a picture book and the main character is named Marvin and he has a favorite color."

dad: "A dashing fellow no doubt?"

me: "'Sort of. He's a marshmallow."
