Two Men Named For(e)man

Brothers from another mothers?

This is several months late, but has there ever been an instance before where two different regular characters on two different, concurrently running series have shared the same name? Because until Wednesday, FOX has both Eric Forman (Topher Grace) on That 70s Show and Eric Foreman (Omar Epps) on House, M.D.

The closest I could come up with is the "Lisa Catera" character referenced in the Cadillac ads and the "Lisa Catera" character named for her on Chicago Hope.

Anyone who can think of a better example automatically wins the legendary Official Pop Culture Petri Dish Gold Star.
