Watching Lost can sometimes feel like taking a university class, what with all the allusions to literature, philosophy, music, Buddhism, Christianity, politics, comic books and countless other subjects being thrown around. And nowhere are these references more ubiquitous than in the character names. At this point, it feels like every character's name has some deep significance behind it. How much do you know about the people behind these names, like the real John Locke? Minimal Lost knowledge is required, but a degree in philosophy would definitely give you a leg up.

Take the quiz.
