* Almost a case in ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow''. Hawkgirl's real name is "Chay-Ara" (pronounced somewhere between "Shay-arra" and "Shee-arra"), and her actress has the similar first name "Ciara" (pronounced "See-arra"). Since Chay-Ara is a character from the comics, this is entirely a coincidence, presuming Ciara Renée wasn't hired for her name.
