'Vergil' is the name of Dante's twin brother in the hit video game series 'Devil May Cry'. According to the Wikipedia entry to the Devil May Cry games:

"The story alludes to The Divine Comedy in the game's areas (roughly resembling and representing inferno, purgatorio, and paradiso) as well as in some of the character names; however it is purely an aesthetic similarity, and indeed the game borrows from a very wide range of sources for inspiration."

Virgil Tracy was named after Virgil Grissom, a NASA Astronaut. All the Tracy brothers were named after the first five Americans into space, I believe.

Virgil Tracy was the number two Thunderbird from the 1960's kids TV series "Thunderbirds", who had a "green ship" during missions. P.s. Nice name, but a bit too adult for the children of today's society though!
