With regard to the Meaningful Name entry, is there *any* evidence that Susan Calvin was named after John Calvin?

The entry is very natter-y, and I think it should be removed. What does the troper-mind thing?

The character's father's name is also John Calvin, but other than that I'm not pulling anything up from a Google search.

Zero-Context Example. The trope page doesn't give any context, either.

I can think of several Asimov stories that might be considered examples of this trope, but none of them are in I, Robot.

"Evidence", "Reason", and "Liar!" all are possibilities, IMHO. Especially "Evidence".
