The particular entity after which a character is named sometimes reflects their personality. For example, someone named after a rock star tends to be hard-drinking, hard-partying, and hard-living, while one named after a classical composer will be more refined, intellectual, and graceful. However, it's also not uncommon for these names to simply exist for the sake of ThemeNaming and just so happen to be musical, and may only exist purely for the audience's amusement.
