Why are there names on paper bags?

On the bottom part of paper bags, like bag lunch bags, there is often a name, like "Oliva Barthalomew" or something like that. Its not a product name, and its not the brand. Could it be some kind of inside joke or something? Maybe the factory owners tribute to someone? Its really weird...

I've never seen that myself, but this blog post asks the same thing and a commenter links to this NPR story which claims a name matches the line worker at the paper bag plant that made the bag.
