    How likely would it be that someone who hears the name 노비타 would assume «내친구 도라에몽» was being referenced? Are there any other famous people named 노비타 as well-known in Korea as 노비 노비타?

    Nobody will probably know about 노비타 unless (s)he watches the animation. It is a very very rare noun among adults. And there is no famous person by the name, 노비타, in Korea right now.

    Many Koreans of age 15-25 would readily recognize the localized name 노진구, but not 노비타.
