I don't know whether this is still relevant as it looks like the thread was started in April but I can't help spreading some geeky name love. Some of my personal favorites:
- Clarissa "Clara" Harlowe Barton: founder of the American Red Cross (Plus there's a Dr. Who connection)
- Ada Lovelace: mathematician who worked on the forerunners to the calculator and computer and daughter of Lord Byron
- Franklin: So many great Franklin's there's Rosalind (biophysicist and X-ray crystallographer who made critical contributions to the understanding of the fine molecular structures of DNA, RNA, and viruses. However, she is not a "discoverer" of the structure of DNA as someone else said. Her X-ray images were instrumental in the discovery and she was the first to interrupt them as proof that the phosphate groups were on the outside of the structure but she did not work on the structure directly with Watson and Crick. However, her assistance was uncredited for many years which is an absolute injustice.)*, Roosevelt, Benjamin, Aretha... And, it could also work for some Francises like Crick, Colins,
- Alfred Hershey & Martha Chase: determined that DNA was the inherited material responsible for traits, not protein (There's also Alfred Nobel).
- Oswald Avery: scientist that determined that chromosomes and genes were made of DNA (Another Dr. Who link).
- Edgar Allen Poe
- Lennon* A Nameberry Nightmare*
Mr. Fry: So, what should we name him?
Mrs. Fry: Uh, you pick. I picked dinner last night.
Mr. Fry: Well, I was thinking of Philip. After those screwdrivers?
Mrs. Fry: That's a great idea! More morphine, please.
