Re: How characters received their names

Guinan was named after Texas Guinan, a famous bartender

JemHadar I hear was an Indian name meaning Warrior. Now I'm reading it was Hindi. I'll try to get confirmation.

Locutus means "one who speaks"

Though not a name, April 5 was chosen because it was the writer's son's birthday.

Butler was named after Shatner's dog that had recently died. He was originally going to be named Jake, after a dog that belonged to a writer that had died. Overruled on the set by the Shat!
No more adventures! I'm not going that way!
