In the Charles Dickens Encyclopedia, compiled by Michael and Molly Hardwick (1973) I counted 2233 characters.
from Aaron (Mutual Friend) to Zephyr (Pickwick)

Really?? Wow! And they were all named characters?

All these characters have names.
Several different characters can have the same name p.e. :
Murdstone Edward : partner in Murdstone and Grinby (Copperfield)
Mrs.Edward Murdstone the first (Copperfield)
Mrs.Edward Murdstone the second (Copperfield)
Jane Murdstone : Edward's sister
There are 15 different characters with the name Tom. etc.
(sorry my English, I'm Belgian - Flemish Speaking)
