Dickens is famous for this.

Just a few examples, those starring with the letter “B”:
Old Bill Barley
The Barnacle family
Henrietta Boffin
Josiah Bounderby
Sampson Brass
Walter Bray
Jefferson Brick
Rosa Bud
Serjeant Buzfuz

Can’t find anything specific.
Perhaps a reverse eponym; character is named for qualities as opposed to eponym - quality named for a character.
Or portmanteau; a word whose form and meaning are derived from a blending of two or more distinct words
