You can thank Mick Jagger for putting the name Bianca into the minds of American parents: In 1971, the uber-popular rocker married a disco-loving woman named Bianca, and that was enough to set the name on fire within a year or two. But the name had been around long before the 1970s: Shakespeare liked Bianca so much, he gave it to characters in “Othello” and “The Taming of the Shrew.” And who could forget about the fun-loving yet sassy Bianca from "10 Things I Hate About You"? Somehow this name manages to be exotic and exciting yet pure and innocent.

Bianca is a short-lived but memorable character on “That’s So Raven.” After all, it’s hard to forget someone who's the lead mean girl at school. Her primary targets? Raven and her friends and family. But one day Raven accidentally hits Bianca with a dodgeball, and the mean girl suddenly stops being mean, as if the evil is knocked out of her. But her nice-girl persona is brief and, fortunately, so is her time on the show.
