This is because the Spartans are all named like ordinary people (with the exception of genetic features, they WERE ordinary people), and Miranda Keyes and Preston Cole are comparatively rare names (two examples given), and seventy-five children were selected for the program, so the chances that they would have ordinary names is much higher. Besides, fans as a rule tend to prefer protagonists with short names.
