Nikola Tesla, the man known for discovering electricity and inventing many things including the microwave, bore this name.
In response to Dark's comment, Tesla did not discover electricity, he merely came up with a second current generator, among other inventions.

In the Battle of the Currents, Thomas Edison was on the weaker DIRECT current side. Edison attempted to flatten Tesla's reputation by electrocuting several animals using Tesla's AC system. Tesla, however, was on the more powerful ALTERNATE current side. Tesla was able to shoot lightning from his fingers using AC current without getting seriously hurt.
