What's in a (character's) name?

Over her career, Carole Lombard portrayed several dozen different characters. Here's a list of names of people she played from her first all-talking picture, "High Voltage," onward.

(Several films have been omitted. In "The Eagle And The Hawk," Lombard's brief role is listed as "The Beautiful Lady," with no name given for her character. In "Safety In Numbers," she's listed as "Pauline," with no last name. In "Virtue," she plays the prostitute Mae, whose last name isn't given; she eventually marries taxi driver Jimmy Doyle, played by Pat O'Brien, but we never learn her maiden name.)
