Fanny Dashwood is the selfish half-sister-in-law of Elinor and Marianne in Jane Austen's -Sense and Sensibility-. Miss Austen also used this name for both the heroine and her mother in -Mansfield Park-. (I believe Jane Austen had a niece with this name.)

There is an old Irish air called Fanny Power, named after a woman who's first name was Fanny and surname was Power. At the time the word Fanny wasn't used as it is now, but it is still kind of funny.
