I don't use placeholders for programming. variables, functions, classes should all be related to module I am working on. But for user-testing, db seeding, etc, I have habit of using existing information of frictional characters created by old writers.

Characters from edgar allen poe, enid blyton, james hadley chase, A lot of Cartoon characters from hanna-barbera shows, Harry Potter, gods from greek mythology, characters from Indian comics. I have a personal DB of fictional addresses, from all the above mention tv-shows, books and novels which I use to feed DB and test forms.
