I met a group of people, but no one told me their names. They just told me these things.

My name contains myself

My name contains something to put on toast

My name contains a ship able to withstand impossible floods!

My name contains a hiding place for animals

My name contains human creativity

My name contains an indication of point or place

My name contains an acronym where abusers go for help

My name contains the center of the Earth

My name contains the reamins of a fire

My name contains a boobie catcher

My name contains what corn comes on

My name contains a couple thousand pounds

My name contains something that is different from what is expected

My name contains an acronym of an agency created by Franklin D. Roosevelt

My name contains an identifying mark

My name contains another word for steal

My name contains a cars fingerprint

Can you help me identify their first names?

All the names are common names that can be found in America. I understand there can be multiple answers for some, I'll take any that fit the clue. (Or multiple if you want to get crazy!)

"My name contains an indication of point or place"

Think of it from more of a third grade English perspective

"My name contains an identifying mark"

Think of it from a farmers perspective

  • $\begingroup$ I asked the person and they confirmed their name isn't buttercup, also "Stalker" informed me they all have real names. (See bottom of OP) $\endgroup$ – Timmy Oct 2 '15 at 19:25
  • $\begingroup$ @Timmy I thought you would take any that fit the clue and I feel like buttercup fits $\endgroup$ – SirParselot Oct 2 '15 at 19:30
  • $\begingroup$ It sounded more clear in my head than what I typed... I should say any name that fits the answer to the clue I was expecting. With the exception to the agency one, because there are tons of those and that would be cruel. Sorry for the poor wording. $\endgroup$ – Timmy Oct 2 '15 at 19:35
  • $\begingroup$ Very close! You guys almost solved this in the same amount of time it took me to make it! For "My name contains an indication of point or place" think of it from more of a third grade English perspective, and for "My name contains an identifying mark" think of it from a farmers perspective. $\endgroup$ – Timmy Oct 2 '15 at 19:52
