I was just thinking about the fairy tale characters' real world counterparts, and I noticed that most of them had names that tied into their "real," fairy tale selves. So I decided to throw together a list of their names, with meanings and explanations, just for kicks. First I will say what the character's name is in fairy tale land, then in the real world, with meaning attached. All name meanings come from the website Behind the Name, with help from Wikipedia.
I will add more characters when they are introduced and edit existing characters when we know their full names and/or know more about...
Many people (including the writers) seem to overlook the Blue Fairy but the truth is that she is one of the three most powerful people in Storybrook both because of her magic and because of the persuasive power she has over people. This article is meant to take a closer look at her involvement in the story and the effect her actions and prejudice has had on the lives of the main characters.
So there is no confusion the regular font is fact (taken mostly from OUATwiki) and italicized is my opinion.
