Although not particularly famous, manga fans may be pleased to know that in the graphic novel 'Death Note', Kira is the name the public gives to the supposedly "righteous" slayer of criminals behind the Death Note murders. In this manga, however, 'Kira' is in fact male -- the Japanese pronunciation of the name gives it a hint of the word 'killer', adding to the sheer creepiness of his character. 'Kira' actually means 'light', and in the English version of the manga, Raito (Kira's actual name) is changed to Light for 'easy reading'.

Read up on the manga if you're interested; you /won't/ be disappointed.

For the people who have made the death note connection; r and l are often pronounced the same in Japanese; they do not distinguish between the two letters. Thus, when people pronounce Killer, they say Kira. Also, as I saw above, Light is actually the name of 'Kira,' not Raito, again, it has to do with the lack of discrimination between L and R.

Kira is also the new name of Jack in the Chronicles of Riddick.

It's a really cool name. And it's the same one as the awesome main character, a slightly world-weary teenage Colombian freespirit in the book Last Tanker To Cancún.
