The Good, the Bad And the Ugly by Joe MillardThe book is full of unnecessary changes, such as changing Blondies name to Whitey and Angel Eyes name to Sentenza. The three-way gun battle at the end is eliminated for a fight only between Blondie / Whitey and Angel Eyes / Sentenza. The gunfight between Angel Eyes / Sentenzas men and Blondie / Whitey and Tuco (whose name isnt changed for some odd reason) in the war-torn town is reduced to one paragraph. These changes serve no purpose, and Millard uses the phrase all hell broke loose, which breaks one of Elmore Leonards rules.

Eastwood's character does indeed have a name albeit a nickname and a different one in each film: "Joe", "Manco" and "Blondie", respectively.
The films were not originally intended to be a series, but the American distributor, United Artists , invented the concept for marketing purposes, establishing Clint Eastwood 's character in each film to actually be the same person. Thus, the films have been considered by many to be a series ever since. Additionally, a series of novels released in the years after the films establish the films as belonging to the same continuity. Although the films were not originally envisioned as a series, they do not contain any major continuity errors when viewed as such.
