A name game

After a lunchtime conversation with soupkills, I have a little puzzle for the truly bored (and soupkills isn't allowed to play because he knows at least part of the answer already):

1. What do the following names have in common: Anne, Cara, David, David, Elizabeth, John, Lee, Lynn, Mark, Richard, and Steven?
