Delenn of Mir was an ambassador from the planet Minbar in the television series Babylon 5. She was one of the leaders of the Grey Council, Minbar's ruling council. After a year aboard Babylon 5, she underwent a transformation inside an ancient device that turned her into a Human-Minbari hybrid. She and John Sheridan, the commander of Babylon 5, fell in love and were married. Together they had a son, David Sheridan. She became the leader of a group of Rangers in the Army of Light. When John Sheridan decided not to run for re-election as President of the Interstellar Alliance, she was chosen to succeed him. 

Delenn is an invented name. It's a few letters off from the Cornish name Dellen, but I think that may just be a coincidence. In 2011, 5 girls were named Delenn.
