Existe uma lenda na Internet de que foi o tenente Starbuck (Dirk Benedict) da série antiga Battlestar Gallactica que inspirou (ou mesmo criou!) o nome Starbucks Coffee. Uma simples busca na net destroi ese mito, dado que a companhia foi fundada em 1971, com o nome de Starbucks Coffee, Tea and Spices (depois mudado para Starbucks Coffee Company), bem antes da série antiga vir ao ar (1978).
Uma lista de personagens com nome Starbuck pode ser encontrada na Wikipedia:
Starbuck, the first mate of the ship Pequod in Herman Melville's novel Moby-Dick
Lieutenant Starbuck, a character in the original 1978 Battlestar Galactica film and TV series
Captain Kara Thrace, call sign Starbuck, a character in the 2004 Battlestar Galactica TV series
Nathaniel Starbuck, the main character in the Starbuck Chronicles novels by Bernard Cornwell
Elon Cody Starbuck, a space pirate featured in the adult-oriented anthology Star Reach and in Heavy Metal magazine
Bill Starbuck, the main character in the play The Rainmaker (1954) by N. Richard Nash, later a film (1956) with Katharine Hepburn and Burt Lancaster; adapted by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt as a Broadway musical, 110 in the Shade, in 1963, and revived on Broadway in 2007
Starbuck, the nickname given to fictional character Dana Scully by her father in the TV series The X-Files
Na wiki-página da Starbucks company, encontramos:
The company is named in part after
Starbuck, Captain Ahab's first mate in the book Moby-Dick, as well as a turn-of-the-century mining camp (Starbo or Storbo) on Mount Rainier. According to Howard Schultz's book Pour Your Heart Into It: How Starbucks Built a Company One Cup at a Time, the name of the company was derived from Moby-Dick, although not in as direct a fashion as many assume. Gordon Bowker liked the name "Pequod" (the ship in the novel), but his creative partner Terry Heckler responded, "No one's going to drink a cup of Pee-quod!" Heckler suggested "Starbo." Brainstorming with these two ideas resulted in the company being named for the Pequod's first mate, Starbuck.[19]
