Sinclair Lewis decided to name his novel Babbitt because its main character, George F. Babbitt, is a symbol for a "type" of modern American whom Lewis wanted to satirize in this fact, when this book first came out, people were constantly coming up to Lewis on the street and saying that Babbitt must have been written about a specific guy that they knew.
