We named our youngest daughter Katara. She has the only name that comes from a source of fiction. We put a lot of thought into what we name our kids and we feel that Katara from Avatar: TLA is a very good role model for our children.

Katara: a powerful, 14-year-old Waterbender of the Southern Water Tribe in the Nickelodeon animated series "Avatar: The Last Airbender" which was adapted for a movie called 'Airbender' directed by M.

Katara also appears in Avatar: The Legend of Korra as an elderly woman.
