When Fandoms and Language collide

I have long been a fan of the Robots series by Isaac Asimov.

It only recently occured to me the following:

R. Daneel Olivaw... his first name is actually Daniil (Russian for Daniel)

Elijah Baley... the Russian equivalent of Elijah is Ilya.

Um... Dany and Ilya anyone?

*is intensely amused*
