Velvet Underground - Nico - "Greek Connection"

The alleged "Greek connection" of German-origin Velvet Underground singer Nico: The adopted name of Cologne-born Christa Päffgen, i.e. Nico, which she went by for most of her life, was given to her by photographer Herbert Tobias, who was photographing her on a modeling job in the 1950s. He supposedly named her this after his friend, Greek filmmaker Nikos Papatakis.
