What was the first name of P.G. Wodehouse's famous servant character Jeeves?
While Jeeves' name is indeed Reginald, even many fans may not be aware of this, and know him mainly by his last name. However, there was a real Percy Jeeves, a member of the Goole Cricket Club who died in 1916 during World War I. Wodehouse named the character after him, also drawing inspiration from his actual butler Eugene Robinson. Source: Flavorwire, BBC
