Not a character, but in elementary school I had a classmate (probably born c. 1968) named Nichelle Nicholes or Nicholls or something. I would imagine there was an upswing in African-American girls named Nichelle in the late '60s, but she had the advantage of a nearly identical last name.
My dear departed cat Natasha
was named by her original owners after Natasha Fatale from Rocky & Bullwinkle
, but I kept the name because of Tasha Yar from TNG.
Back when Robotech
was on the air, I thought that "Miriya" was a lovely name, so much that I'd consider naming a daughter that if I ever had one.
