"You are a little late, Memory," said Stryver. (from A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens; a larger context is here; use ctrl-f to locate the sentence)

Please explain "Memory", which is used to address Sydney Carton, Stryver's legal associate.  Thanks.  --- tk

It's a nickname - maybe the person had a really good memory and that became his nickname.
