Have you named your child after a sci fi character?
 
Have you or do you know someone who has named their child after a sci fi/fantasy character? What is the name and why did you pick that name?

I have 2 beautiful daughters named Jadzia and Arwen. I am a big fan of Star Trek and LOTR as well, but I was also looking for a not-so-common name for my daughters. I loved the characters and thought the names were beautiful. So lets see if I'm the only crazy person in the galaxy to do this......

I named my cat Starbuck. No people, though.

I did decide a few years ago that if I ever have a son, I would like to name him "Scaper," after Farscape.

My nephew was named Drake after Drake Burroughs (Wildfire of the Legion of Super-Heroes).

I called my car Spike. He's black - like Spike's leather duster, and evil - because of his fuel consumption. :devil:

Not yet, but I'm working on it.

My strategy is to suggest SciFi related names without letting on about why I like them.

My friend has a cat called sparta, so when anyone asks it's name they reply 'THIS IS SPARTA' 300 style

I did think about naming my cat Aerith, but I don't have a cat.

My own name (first/last) is shared with an actor who portrays a well-known genre character.
