No, there was a Queen called Mary the bloody that used to drink the blood from virgins to stay young. That's where we get bloody mary. I know, it sounded familiar to me too when I first heard it. Wonder when he changed from William the bloody to Spike? And how did Angel go from Liam to Angelus?

Spike's "human" name is William Pratt. The name William Pratt may allude to horror actor Boris Karloff, whose birth name was William Henry Pratt.
So, the person who wrote Spike's character used the real name of a horror actor.
