Star Trek Memories

 Khan Noonien Singh

Why does Khan in Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan have a full name of Khan Noonien Singh, and Commander Data of Star Trek: The Next Generation have a creator whose name is Dr. Noonien Soong?

Is there a relation between Khan and the kindly Doctor Soong? Wow!

I guess that "Noonien" is their mothers' maiden name, so they are related on the maternal side.

Again.... Wow!

I never knew that . . . about the names. How do you turn up such things?

For the longest time I thought Khan's name was just Khan.
