Parents Name Their Son Bane after the Batman Villain


British rugby player Jamie Jones-Buchanan and his wife have named their new son after Bane, the masked villain from the Batman franchise:

The Leeds Rhinos' player said he and his childhood sweetheart always intended to give their future children unusual names.

He said: "I've known Emma since school and we always said that if we had kids we would call our first one Lore as I used to be a bit of a Trekkie.

"We are delighted with the new addition and he is sleeping well. I came up with the idea and my wife had the final say, as usual."

This isn't the first baby name that Jones-Buchanan has taken from fiction. His son Lore is named after Data's evil twin brother. Kurgan gets his name from the primary antagonist of the first Highlander movie. The Sun also reports that one child is named Dacx from Star Trek, which I think actually refers to Dax.

I contemplated Bruce Wayne and Nick Seafort as names for my own children. What science fiction characters do you think could offer good baby names?
