Maybe this is overly self-indulgent of me but I was watching something on TV where a writer mentioned a tendency to use the same names for characters repeatedly and I decided to go over my fic and see if any names repeat. I am only counting OCs except for one character in one House ep whom I gave a name to, and obviously not counting OCs who weren't named.
i got the following list of names:

First names:
Chris (appeared twice, once as Wilson's non-schizophrenic brother)
Lily
Gabriella
Morgan
Ronnie
Junkyard (a biker)
Peter (twice, one patient the other Wilson's father)
John, Johnnie (appeared in two different fandoms)
Rudy
Jennifer (Wilson's niece)
Kathy (Wilson's other niece)
Helen (Wilson's mom)
Nancy
Jake
Andrew
Bill
Amelia
Suzanna (Chase's cousin)
Steve, Stephen (two different stories)
Josh
Tim
Qabir
Patrick
Naomi

Characters Identified by last name only:
Wang
Volk
Barron
Monolos

Characters identified by first and last names:
Lotus Upshaw
Figgy Featherstonehaugh (both names appearing in P.G. Wodehouse pastiches)
Vanessa Lee (giggly Asian hooker whom House did the bow and arrow trick with in "Out Of The Chute" and the only hooker character on the show who seemed to actually have a personality and not just exist as some weird fantasy of David Shore's)
Elizabeth Grant
Lucia Romano
Jane Olasz
Scott Taylor
Sharon Nguyen
Carol Johnson
Griffin Faust
Solveig Neilsen
Rebecca (twice, one patient, Weiss, one hospital staff member, Fawcett)
Richard Walpole
