Waldo is the main character of the short story "the Gift" by Lou Reed, which was put to music and read by John Cale in a song by the same title. Waldo is worrying that his long distance girlfriend, Marsha, is cheating on him, so he mails himself to her. Things do not end well for Waldo.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, essayist, philosopher, and pivotal member of the transcendentalist movement.

Middle name of Ralph Ellison, author of "Invisible Man." Yes, his name was Ralph Waldo Ellison.

The original title of the "Where's Waldo" books is "Where's Wally." For some inexplicable reason, the name was changed to "Waldo" for the U.S. and Canadian editions. (Why? The nickname "Wally" is used in the U.S., at least. I would be very surprised if the same was not true in Canada.)
