English term or phrase:Goof-Hopper
Reading the manuscript of Plath's second novel, Assia easily identified David and herself as the Goof-Hoppers, and was disgusted not only by her portrayal as an "icy, barren woman," but also by David's character as "detestable and contemptible."

Notes to answerer
Asker: Wydaje mi się, że nazwisko to powinno odzwierciedlać stosunek autorki do Assii i Davida (Assia była kochanką jej męża, miała już za sobą burzliwą przeszłość, a jej obecny mąż przymykał oko na romans, przez co Plath nie raz nazywała go głupkiem)
