Did he have a son named Daniel?

Get it? Jack O'Neill...Daniel, Jack's son...Daniel Jackson...

I'll just be leaving, then.

With only one "l"? He must have had no sense of humor.

Re: Have you named your child after a sci fi character?

I met a woman who was named Rayna after a character in TOS. A good friend of mine has a dog named Kaylee, and another friend has a cat named Zoe.

If I ever end up with a daughter me and the girlfriend are considering Kira or (something I'm lobbying for) Juliet. The latter as much for the obvious classical reference as Lost.

We're done having kids, but if we did have another daughter, I think Jadzia is a great name.

One of my friends and his wife has named their eldest son "Jareth" after David Bowie's character in Labyrinth.

my next child will be named Rook if it's a girl after Rook Bartley from Robotech. I was going to with Rand for a boys name also from Robotech but I am going to go with Ender. Ender will definitely get him laid.
I mentioned Rook and Rand earlier. Love those names.

Rand works doubly for me, too - Robotech and maps (since I make maps for a living).
There are so many great female characters with cool names from Robotech. Miriya, Nova, Dana, Sera but I think Rook was the most badass character and had the coolest name.

Until recently, CNN had a reporter by that name too.
