 The Origins Of The Name Starbuck.

Starbuck is a character in the 1851 novel Moby-Dick by author Herman Melville. Before it was used in that novel here is where then name came from.

English (mainly Leicestershire): habitational name from Starbeck in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

The earliest recorded mention of the area comes from the award of forestland to the Plompton family in 1190. Clearly visible on the original map of the award is a stream flowing across land between Harrogate and Knaresborough. One of the estate boundary markers was a small bridge obviously made of wooden stakes, going by the name of Stokkebrigg. There is no doubt from the evidence of the map that Stokkebrigg was Starbeck. Being marshy ground, for the next three hundred years or so the land, through many different spellings, became known as Stoke-Brig-Myre. In peat cutting regulations of 1512 Stokebrigmyre was described as next to Bilton Park and Belmont Land, or in other words Starbeck.

Stokkebrigg means an outlying farm with a bridge.

(It is a bit more ordinary than I expected, but I found it interesting none the less).

BTW, did you know that "Thrace" is a place in Europe?
If you don't believe me, see : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thrace

Wow, it goes with the whole ancient earth myth. I looked up the name Kara, it comes from Norse lore:

She was a Valkyrie and a Swan Maiden, but due to low flying she ran into an upraised sword whilst trying to prevent a battle. Even worse it belonged to her husband Heiga, a happy hero until this tragic accident.

Kara "Starbuck" Thrace it such a great character name.
