Yes it’s a real name. The fact that some character in some book had this name doesn’t mean it can’t be real.
I’m a Haskeller and a user of Arch (previously Ubuntu). I have a MacBook Pro 13″ with Retina (late 2013) and will happily let you test anything MacBook/Retina–specific on my laptop. (As to my knowledge,
rm -rf / is not MacBook-specific.)
