Names in the Title

After the look at animals in the titles yesterday, I decided to have a look at names in my book titles. As with animals, there are a few... Here are most of the names. I've missed out names such as Blinky Bill and Skippy and so on where I didn't invent the character.

Where a name is repeated (such as Maria/Maria) it refers to two different books about two different people. (Maria's Diary and Maria and the Pocket in this case.) The two Kates are from A Crew for Captain Kate and Rosina and Kate. Series characters such as Pearl the unicorn and Rosina Paul appear  just once, even though their names are on more than one book. In a handful of cases the name in the book title is a nickname. In these cases the full first name is given in brackets. Obviously, I've used some initial letters more than once... and QUYZ don't appear all. Hmmm. There's just one N and the only O to date is actually a surname... All this must mean something or other, but I don't know what!
