Being named after something popular is no better than being named something
ridiculous. When I was growing up, the big thing on TV was Walt Disney's
Davy Crockett. I got so sick of the name "Davy" -- everyone assumed that
I'd be pleased to share the name of this famous and popular personage and
never bothered to ask -- that to this day I automatically correct anyone
who shortens my name in any way, shape or form.

In Japan, the popular saying is that the nail that stands up gets hammered
Does that answer your question?
