 INDIANA JONES

Answer: In Raiders of the Lost Ark, archaeologist Indiana Jones was named after George Lucas's dog named Indiana. The character was originally named Indiana Smith, after his dog Indiana, an Alaskan Malamute that Lucas owned in the 1970s. Spielberg disliked the name Smith, and Lucas casually suggested Jones as an alternative. In the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Henry "Indiana" Jones Jr. admits to having taken for himself the name of the family dog, Indiana, of whom he had very fond memories.

EUROPE

Answer: Europium is a chemical element with the symbol Eu. Europium is a ductile metal with a hardness similar to that of lead. Europium was isolated in 1901 and is named after the continent of Europe. Europium has no significant biological role and is relatively non-toxic compared to other heavy metals. Europium is one of the rarest of rare earth elements on Earth. French chemist, Eugene-Anatole Demarcay, is typically credited with the discovery of the element as he ultimately produced a relatively pure form of the rare earth metal in 1901.

LAWRENCE

Answer: Lawrence Peter "Yogi" Berra was a professional baseball catcher, who later took on the roles of manager and coach. He played 19 seasons in Major League Baseball, all but the last for the New York Yankees. He was an 18-time All-Star and won 10 World Series championships as a player—more than any other player in MLB history. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest catchers in baseball history. He was known for his malapropisms as well as pithy and paradoxical statements, such as "It ain't over 'til it's over". He once simultaneously denied and confirmed his reputation by stating, "I really didn't say everything I said."

Sleeping Beauty

SLEEPING BEAUTY

Answer: Prince Philip reportedly inspired a Disney character many years ago. According to one Disney fandom website, the prince in “Sleeping Beauty” was named after the Duke of Edinburgh. The animated film was created in 1959, and at that time, Prince Philip was the most senior figure in the royal household. “Sleeping Beauty” is also the first Disney movie to have named its prince. Other films like “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” and “Cinderella” did not. He is said to have been named after the prince that Americans knew of best at that time, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, husband of Queen Elizabeth II”.

ICOSAHEDRON

Answer: The Magic 8-Ball is a toy used for fortune-telling or seeking advice, developed in the 1950s and manufactured by Mattel. The Magic 8-Ball is a hollow plastic sphere resembling an oversized, black-and-white 8-ball. Inside, a cylindrical reservoir contains a white, plastic icosahedron floating in alcohol dyed dark blue. In geometry, an icosahedron is a polyhedron with 20 faces. Each of the die's 20 faces has an affirmative, negative, or non-committal statement printed in raised letters. These messages are read through a window on the ball's bottom.

D'oh! If you didn't guess Homer, considered the first of the Greek epic poets, then you were off the mark.

 ZACHARY

Answer: Zachary Taylor was the 12th president of the United States, serving from March 1849 until his death in July 1850. Taylor previously was a career officer in the United States Army, rose to the rank of major general and became a national hero as a result of his victories in the Mexican–American War. As a result, he won election to the White House despite his vague political beliefs. His top priority as president was preserving the Union, but he died sixteen months into his term, before making any progress on the status of slavery, which had been inflaming tensions in Congress.
