I always think it's cool when you can pay homage to your family with your work.

Yeah...  I pretty much knew from a while back how most of the characters were family names...  In theory, "Bart" is Matt... but I guess he changed the name to protect the innocent :)

There are also several characters that are named after streets in Portland, Oregon -- Flanders, Kearny, Lovejoy, Quimby, Burns(ide) -- so the show is honoring both Matt Groening's family and his hometown.
trainman is Jim Ellwanger
