    There are a lot of ladies named Annika in the U.S. who happen to be American; it's a beautiful name. Well fit for Jeri Ryan.

    The clinic located by the Q Continuum
    At least her surname wasn't "Drink" or "Tinkel"...

    A lot of people seem to think there has to be a Scandinavian link, but there's no need at all to think that. Her parents were free spirits, and they could've named her whatever they wanted to, even something as foreign as a Bajoran name if they felt like it. The writers picked a name that was awkward at best whenever anyone tried to use it on her, so Seven stuck.

    In many different universes, simultaneously.
    Annika is the name of one of the main characters in the Pippi Longstocking books (series of children's novels by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren).

    There's a prolific fanfic author who writes Chakotay/Seven stories (she's good at making him halfway interesting), and writes some of the dialogue in Swedish (with translations, of course).
