Good idea. There aren't many Francisco's I could nominate

If you allow it I'll vote for Paco Delgado (Paco is a short name for Francisco) an Academy award nomineer whose work I like. But since he is a costume designer he may not be eligible.

My other choice is Francis Ford Coppola, with Francis being the English version of my name.

Thanks, I added Paco Delgado. All people or characters from the movie or TV industry are eligible.

It's not spelled the same way but Sarah Tobias (character, played by Jodie Foster) from 'The Accused.'

Hoekie,

For your consideration:

Hello Dan, I don't know Dan Rather, but he seem to be a journalist. I like to add people or characters from the movie or TV business.

Hoekkie,

Yes, Dan Rather is a well-known and respected American journalist. I will suggest another when I find someone suitable.

Hello Dan, I don't know Dan Rather, but he seem to be a journalist. I like to add people or characters from the movie or TV business. 

FYI: Dan Rather is a news anchor more than an active journalist. Not just mere semantics.

Reporters are a subset of journalists. Many journalists work as reporters, but not all reporters are journalists. In some forms of media, such as radio or TV, producers or research teams, rather than reporters, are responsible for fact-checking. Reporters play a specific role in the news industry.

Source

A reporter is one who gathers news on the current events and an anchor is a person who just sits down in front of camera and delivers the news to the people. Anchor also called as anchorman, anchor woman, news presenter and newsreader. ... When comparing the two jobs, the job of an anchor is more prestigious and high paid.

Source

So, basically, Dan Rather is a well-known television figure in the US, though he has moved his anchor position away from network television to online streaming (the effect is basically the same).

I don't think I have a favorite Jessica, so I'll go with Jessie from Toy Story:

Yes, I changed the description after the suggestion of a costum designer. I allowed that one because it’s a person from the movie or tv industry. Sorry but game characters are excluded. Hope you can find a other pick.

I don't know anyone with my name but since it is derived from Christian, can I take Christian? That would be Christian Bale.

I don't have any favorite "Cyril" or "Martin" character so I'll go with Marty McFly.
