No, they are the names of the characters. In the outsiders ponyboy mentions that his and his brother sodapops name are real, even on their birth certificates. Sodapops nickname was pepsi cola. the gang members don't call him by that nickname, only his dad did. :)

In The Outsiders, Ponyboy Curtis is the characters real name. His father gave him the name along with his brothers Sodapop and Darryl.

believe it or not his actual name is sodapop:)

His real name is Sodapop Curtis. Pony makes a point of mentioning that it says so on his ceritifcate (just like his name is actually Ponyboy and it says so on his certificate) in the book, too.

It's Rob Lowe ,but Sodapop isn't true though .But in the movie ,it wuz Rob Lowe .

S.E. Hinton based The Outsiders on her life. When she grew up she had friends that were in a gang and that were called "Greasers". S.E. Hinton didn't know her friends were hoods until a Soc came and yelled "Greaser" at her friends. She started to write a story about the differences between the Socs and the Greasers. In case your wondering there is no real life Johnny Cade, Ponyboy, Sodapop "Soda", and Darryl "Darry" Curtis, or Dallas "Dally" Winston, Two-Bit Mathews, or Steve Randle. There also was no real life Sherri "Cherry" Valance, Marcia, Bob, or Randy. But there was a real life gang called Greasers and a real people that are called Socs.

The boys in this are extreamly real. The theme is real nice. The Outsiders is hilarious.

Ponyboy Curtis is his real name. The book says a couple of times that it says so on his birth certificate.

Ponyboy Curtis is his real name.
