Does it bother anyone else that...?

Ben and Kasidy named their daughter Rebecca after Michael Eddington's wife?

It's called a coincidence.

Wasn't Sisko's sister also named Rebecca?

Rebbeca was the not the prophet stepmother who raised Ben.

Naming your kid after your dead mother is the usual thing.

The Sisko has spoken.

I could have sworn there was someone named Rebecca in his family, though. Could be wrong.

Simple as that.

Honestly, the name of Eddington's deceased wife never once came to mind to me, but I'm sure she wasn't the first or will be the last person to ever be named Rebecca.

I bet if he'd tried to give her a Bajoran name Kasidy would have baulked.

Is it really? Seems quite conventional to name your kids after your parents. Although in this case it's a bit different since she vanished after realizing she'd been possessed by backwater aliens posing as gods..

No... actually if he'd done that on purpose it wouldn't have bothered me either...

Um...no. The Prophet-possessed woman was the one who gave birth to Ben. It was a woman who was NOT possessed who married Joseph Sisko and raised Ben.

Judith was the woman Ben called Mama as he grew. Sarah was the woman who gave him birth.

^ Judith was his sister. Sisko's step-mother was never named in the series; her name was established in the novels.
