We all call the default skin in Minecraft "Steve", but I've always wondered how did he get that name. I know Notch has never officially called him Steve. In fact, whenever Notch refers to Steve he always puts a question mark after his name. I know in the very early stages of Minecraft there was a Mob named Steve, but was removed when the artist who created him left the company. Anyways, How did the current Steve get his name?

I think the story goes that Notch was asked "What's the main characters name?". And he answered "I don't know. Steve?"
And then the name including the question mark sticked.

This.

And in Minecraft PE, the default character name is "Stevie", which is just an alternate form of Steve(?).
Also, it maybe a reference to Steve, and old test mob that was going to be a default avatar.

"The current Minecraftplayer model appears in Super Meat Boy as a playable character called Steve. Notch is not sure that this is his official name, as he puts a question mark symbol after it"

Read that on minecraftwiki, might answer your question.

Since the creator of the Mob Steve left the company Notch took him out as a mob but might have put him in as the character in Minecraft. Since Notch wasn't using Steve as a mob he has full right to use him.
I don't argue. Is simply explain how I'm right.

Someone asked Notch what his name was, and he jokingly answered Steve(?).
