There's a pop chanteuse originating from Blackpool who calls herself 'Little Boots'.

I wonder how many of her fans will pick up the reference.

Any serious fans who read her interviews will know

The name 'Little Boots'?

When I started doing my own project I wanted a name that was external to me rather than just use my real name... Little Boots was what my friend had started calling me after watching a film called Caligula... Caligula is Latin for 'little boots' which was the name of a Roman Emperor who was pretty insane... he turned the palace into a brothel and made his horse a member of the roman consul, pretty mad... look it up on Wikipedia. Anyway the name just kind of suited me and it stuck.

Interview here

Yeah, I know, but she's a musician, not a historian!
